Englesby Brook flows through south Burlington, emptying into Lake Champlain in Burlington Bay. The brook’s headwaters originate within the Burlington Country Club near the South Burlington town line.

Currently, the Stream Team is monitoring one site along Englesby Brook with the help of volunteers. Water samples are being taken twice monthly throughout the summer and are tested for phosphorous, nitrogen, chloride, and turbidity.
