Vermont panel looks at reducing pollution from farms

MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) The Vermont House Agriculture Committee heads to Bridport and St. Albans this week for two public hearings on reducing pollution caused by farm runoff.

The panel is considering a bill that would make several changes in how farms operate, including requiring fences to keep livestock out of streams.

The legislation comes as the state continues its long-term efforts to reduce the amount of phosphorus flowing into Lake Champlain from its tributaries.

This week's hearings are both on Thursday — from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at the Masonic Hall in Bridport and from 2 to 4 p.m. at the St. Albans Historical Society and Museum.
