The EPA sent the state a strongly worded letter this spring outlining the ways the state has fallen short in its effort to reduce phosphorous loads in Lake Champlain. The state says its actions have been a model for other states to follow and that the EPA is focused on the wrong priorities for lake cleanup. Laura Pelosi is the commissioner of the Department of Environmental Conservation. Julie Moore is the director of the state's "Clean and Clear Program." Mike Rapacz is a scientist with the Conservation Law Foundation. They spoke with VPR's Mitch Wertlieb about the situation.
