Vermont Farm & Wilderness receives $50,000 grant

The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources awarded Farm & Wilderness, a Plymouth-area summer camp and conservation non-profit, a $50,000 Clean Water Initiative Program grant for planning and permitting the removal and site restoration of Rockefeller Dam in Plymouth.

The removal of the Rockefeller Dam and site restoration will improve water quality in Woodward Reservoir, through cooler water temperatures and sediment reduction, improving the ecological habitat.

The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation’s (DEC) Clean Water Initiative Program (CWIP) funds projects are designed to improve water quality by reducing nutrient and sediment pollution. Project compliance and oversight will be performed by the agency’s technical project manager Todd Menees.
