Vermont Shore and Bank Protection Projects

Vermont has approximately 4,936 miles of rivers and streams. The Corps has constructed two bank protection projects in the state which stem riverbank erosion and cost an aggregate $250,500 to construct.

Vermont is the only New England state without a shoreline on the Atlantic Ocean. However, Lake Champlain is surrounded by a 587-mile-long shoreline, which includes the shorelines of islands contained within the lake and is longer than the Atlantic Ocean shorelines of New Hampshire, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Of these 587 miles, 380 miles lie in Vermont, 183 miles lie in New York, and 24 in Quebec. The shoreline of Lake Champlain's perimeter, excluding the shorelines of islands on the lake, totals 535 miles.
