Commission looking at ways to restore Vt brook
The Associated Press | February 16,2013
BURLINGTON — A planning commission has secured a $3,600 state grant to help restore a polluted brook between Burlington and South Burlington.
The Winooski-based Chittenden County Regional Planning Commission says the Centennial Brook is impaired because of pollution-laden storm runoff and erosion.
The commission plans to use the grant, as well as $91,000 from local holders of stormwater permits, to fund strategies to prevent or lessen the effects of runoff.
It’s looking into rain gardens and other techniques.
