Vermont is home to thousands of fresh water lakes, ponds, rivers and streams. Our waters are a great destination for everything from swimming and fishing to boating and tubing. We all have a role to play in keeping our recreational waters a safe and healthy place for everyone.
Healthy Recreational Waters Guidance
Vermont Healthy Recreational Waters Guidance designed to provide guidance to the managers and users of Vermont’s recreational lakes, ponds, streams, and rivers. This guidance was developed with assistance from the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources.
