Champlain 2000 Retires: WPTZ aired its last Champlain 2000 news story on September 13th, 2004. The Lake Champlain Basin Program is thrilled to have been a partner with WPTZ and Key Bank on this long-running and award-winning series. WPTZ will kick off a whole new series of stories covering the Champlain Valley in October 2004. We look forward to partnering on this new series. Stay Tuned!

About Champlain 2000

Champlain 2000 was a partnership among WPTZ NEWS CHANNEL 5 the Lake Champlain Basin Program and KeyBank. Champlain 2000 focused on our environment and quality of life, people and projects that protect them, and the actions and issues that threaten them. Champlain 2000 aired on the 6 o'clock news on Mondays from May 1999 until September 2004.

The LCBP agreed to help Champlain 2000 viewers learn more about issues facing the Lake Champlain Basin by providing additional information to the Champlain 2000 series on this web site. Visit the links on the left to read selected stories.
