    The head of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency is going to be in Vermont talking about plans to clean up Lake Champlain.

    EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy will join Gov. Peter Shumlin and other officials Friday to kick off a "Call to Action" meeting with representatives of at least 13 federal agencies that will plan actions to reduce pollution and harmful algae blooms in the lake.

    McCarthy is expected to offer EPA technical assistance to help the city of Burlington take a more "integrated approach to stormwater and wastewater" projects.

    After a meeting at the ECHO Lake Aquarium and Science Center in Burlington, McCarthy is going to visit St. Albans Bay.
