Saving Our Waters, a three-part documentary produced by VT PBS with major funding by VT EPSCoR, was recognized with a Boston/Regional Emmy Award in the Environmental category, on June 2, 2018. The series focuses on the health and resiliency of Lake Champlain Basin, especially with the increase of extreme weather events. VT EPSCoR Science Leaders (pictured above) from the University of Vermont who are from multiple disciplines ranging from engineering, social, natural and computational sciences, were instrumental in the content development and provided guidance on the science and complex issues surrounding the Lake Champlain Basin. Together they work with broader teams of researchers from across the state on the National Science Foundation (NSF) VT EPSCoR RII-Track-1 Award, Lake Champlain Basin Resilience to Extreme Events (BREE).
