In July, 2015, the South Lake Champlain Partnership, organized by the District and Rutland Regional Planning Commission, was honored to receive a High Meadows Fund grant to promote flood resiliency in the Flower Brook watershed. The District and RRPC have been meeting with the governing bodies of the three towns in the watershed, Danby, Pawlet, and Tinmouth to discuss projects that increase flood resiliency in the Flower Brook watershed and to initiate a model for future planning and emergency management.
