    MONTPELIER — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has sent the state a new blueprint for cleaning up its lakes and rivers, including Lake Champlain.

    The corrective action plan the state has agreed to follows five years of prodding by the Conservation Law Foundation and the Vermont Law School Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic, which had asked that the EPA take over enforcement of the Clean Water Act in the state.

    Among the steps the state is required to take are providing an opportunity for the public to review and comment on enforcement actions related to violations of water quality law; updating the state’s system for reporting violations of federal water quality law; and improving regulation of animal feedlots.
