ABSTRACT
The article discusses on Lake Champlain, Vermont. The Department of Environmental Conservation and more than 60 other organizations came out with a manual about the most appropriate, effective, and economical methods of stabilizing the shoreline of the waterfront land to help property owners make informed decisions. The manual received the 2006 Outstanding Planning Award for a Project, Program, or Tool. The article further says that the accumulation of unwanted sediments on the lake bottom and in the streams and rivers that feed the lake is a major, yet often unrecognized problem of Lake Champlain. Jurij Homziak, coastal and watershed specialist with the Lake Champlain Sea Grant program, believes that destabilization of shoreline happens because of the cutting down of trees.
