CWICNY Background

Recognizing the need for more water quality improvement initiatives on the New York side of Lake Champlain, the five New York counties within the basin formed the Champlain Watershed Improvement Coalition of New York, Inc. (CWICNY). With representatives from the five county Soil and Water Conservation Districts, the five county Water Quality Coordinating Committees, and the Lake Champlain/Lake George Regional Planning Board, CWICNY goes beyond political boundaries and incorporates public sector/private citizen partnerships to complete projects good for the watershed as a whole.
