A breakwater that for more than a century has helped protect boats and travelers crossing Lake Champlain may soon be getting a multi-million-dollar makeover. The U.S Army Corps of Engineers inspected the breakwater recently and will conduct studies into fixing the breakwater near the ferry docks at Gordon’s Landing in Grand Isle, Vermont. Any work will take into consideration the prime lake trout spawning grounds around the breakwater.
We’ll talk with the Lake Champlain Basin Program’s Meg Modley about that project, and others to help protect the lake from invasive species.
