The Friends of Northern Lake Champlain worked with Stone Environmental and the Village of Swanton to install a new “Green” traffic calming island at the corner of Academy Street and Route 7.  This project was funded by the State’s Ecosystem Restoration Program and the Village.  The design was created to “absorb the storm” and soak water away from approximately 1 acre of impervious surface.
