Research Will Inform Public Policy, Support Economic and Workforce Development
What makes some parts of the Lake Champlain Basin and its watersheds resilient in the face of extreme weather events, increasingly common in a warming Vermont, while other parts fail to recover and rebound?
A $20 million award from the National Science Foundation to Vermont EPSCoR will help answer that question, providing much needed information to decision-makers as they govern the basin and develop policies that reach far into the future.
The award, one of the largest in Vermont history, was announced by U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy and University of Vermont president Tom Sullivan at press conference at the ECHO Leahy Center for Lake Champlain on April 18.
