Leahy Calls For Ongoing Lake Research

Senator Patrick Leahy is pressing for more research and education regarding the pollution-threatened Lake Champlain.

Leahy was among the dignitaries to speak at the start of a two-day environmental summit entitled "Blue Water in Green Mountains."

The gathering came as the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center turns 10 years old. Leahy said lake-based education and research preceded the building's opening, and must continue.
