The state of Vermont has spent $85 million dollars in the last five years to clean up Lake Champlain, but so far, we've seen little in the way of results. On the next Vermont Edition, we go beyond the politics of the clean-up, and look into the science behind the lake's health. UVM Lake Scientist, Mary Watzin, guides us through a discussion about the lake's complex ecosystem, and how pollution affects it.

Send us your questions about the lake's health in an email to vermontedition@vpr.net.

Also, Burlington Free Press reporter Candace Page joins us to talk about efforts to control sea lamprey in Lake Champlain.
