The Vermont Clean Water Fund was created by Act 64, also known as the Vermont Clean Water Act, which was signed into law in June 2015. The law also established a Clean Water Fund Board to administer the Fund and develop an annual budget proposal that broadly outlines the Fund’s use for clean water improvement programs and activities.
