Looking for Volunteers to Clean Up Vermont's West River
This year the Connecticut River Watershed Council's Source to Sea Cleanup coincides with the September 29 West River release in Vermont.
American Whitewater is trying to organize a handful of volunteers to pick up any trash on the West.
Army Corps Torpedo’s West River Releases (VT)
Paddling representatives were
shocked this week to receive a letter from Richard Carlson of the Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE)
stating that the spring release on the Vermont’s popular West River would be made during
the week rather than on a weekend as has been the practice for decades. This news follows an ACOE decision last fall to move the release earlier into
the spring when the state park that provides access is closed. We ask that West River
paddlers take action on this issue.
