Bloom: The Plight of Lake Champlain

The Plight of Lake Champlain

Series Website »
The Plight of Lake Champlain is a documentary on the health of the 6th largest lake in the United States, and the future of the watershed communities of Vermont, New York, and Quebec that surround its waters. This is a story emblematic of lake basins nation- and worldwide that are in a downward spiral of eutrophication, the fertilization of our freshwater systems from a human economy out of balance with its sustaining ecosystem. The blue-green algae blooms in Lake Champlain are the most visible symptom of a lake in decline, and the end point of a failing dairy industry, ill-planned development, and aging wastewater treatment systems.
