Lake Champlain Sea Grant partners with BLUE, an innovative program that certifies homes, businesses, and institutions as watershed friendly. Evaluators educate and collaborate with property owners to identify opportunities for stormwater mitigation, affect behavioral changes, and establish stewardship principles to protect our waters from harmful algae blooms.

Operating in the Lake Champlain basin for more than a decade, BLUE consultants have evaluated hundreds of properties and facilitated the installation of Green Stormwater Infrastructure such as permeable driveways, rain gardens, rain barrels, berm/swale systems, driveway trenches, dry wells, gutter re-directs, and more.

We are currently working on a new home for BLUE and will have more information and a contact soon.
