Restore a Healthy Lake Champlain: Remove the Swanton Dam

This petition had 204 supporters

A large tributary of Lake Champlain, the Missisquoi River is interrupted by the Swanton dam. When the dam is removed, critical spawning habitat for several native fish, including Atlantic salmon, lake sturgeon, walleye, and American eel, will once again become accessible. Lake Champlain will experience a resurgence of these native fish while the natural flow of the Missisquoi River will be restored.
