PHOTOS: Penguin Plunge

Champlain Valley Union High and Williston Central School students braved below-freezing temperatures to leap into the frigid water of Lake Champlain for the 18th annual Burlington Penguin Plunge, a fundraiser for the athletes of Special Olympics Vermont. The CVU Redhawks team raised the most money of any group—$28,007.29— and group from Williston Central School raised $8,332. (Observer photos by Dave Schmidt, www.daveschmidtphoto.com)

    almost 3 decades ago when williston started it’s development review process the public works section was pushing for a wider roadway typical for residential streets. The town adopted 30 ft widths vs 24ft. That’s 6/24 (30%) additional impervious area and runoff that needs to treated before flowing into ALLEN BROOK. The town and selectboard have indicated a lack of interest to reach out and help communties like mine that have had expired stormwater permits for more then a decade. Its always been a wait and see, well I see where this headed now.
