MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources is holding three public meetings this spring as it develops a plan for improving water quality in the Missisquoi Bay basin.

The agency says the recent passage of Act 64, the Vermont Clean Water Act, provides additional tools and resources for water quality planning and remediation.

The agency says land and streambank erosion, nutrient loading, and shore land encroachment from development are the main stressors on water quality and aquatic habitat in the watershed.

It’s encouraging communities to share their priorities at meetings on March 31 at the Enosburg emergency services building from 7 to 9 p.m.; April 21 at the Westfield Community Center from 6 to 7 p.m. and May 24 at the Franklin Town Hall from 5 to 6:30 p.m.
