Evaluations are now closed for the season and will begin again when the snow melts in the spring


What is BLUE®?

Thanks to the Lake Champlain Sea Grant, the Town of Jericho is excited to offer BLUE® - a program for residents of the Lake Champlain Basin to improve water management inside and outside their homes.

You'll learn how to manage stormwater on your property, care for your lawn without impacting the lake, and more tips to keep Lake Champlain clean. You will also learn how to adopt the practices that are good for the lake and your property can become BLUE® certified!

I had my evaluation, now what?

After your evaluation is complete, you will receive a report from your evaluator with recommendations for practices you can install on your property to help manage stormwater runoff. Once you've reviewed your report, you may choose a stormwater management practice to install. You will need to decide whether you're going to install the practice yourself, or hire a contractor to do the work.


In order to ensure the practices installed through this program are as effective as possible, our partner Lake Champlain SeaGrant has developed trainings for three specific types of installations

Trainings and test modules can be found here:

Practices other than those listed above should be installed by a qualified contractor. Your contractor will need to provide a list of qualifications to the evaluator, showing that they understand how to properly install the specified practice. This is particularly important for pervious pavement systems. You or your contractor will then provide a proposed plan for the installation.

I've installed my stormwater management practice, how do I get my certification?

Once your installation is complete, you will notify your evaluator and they will come to do an inspection. They will confirm that the practice was built based on the plan that was originally approved, and issue your BLUE® Certification.
