"Island Waters", a partnership led by the Aquidneck Island Planning Commission (AIPC), is a project funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to reduce nutrient pollution from stormwater and agricultural runoff; restore coastal, surface, ground and drinking water quality; restore habitat and ecosystem functions; and enhance economic opportunity and jobs related to clean water on Aquidneck Island.
Island Waters brings together three municipalities and three non-profit organizations to pioneer a new, collaborative approach for achieving Clean Water Act (CWA) goals on Aquidneck Island. With support from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the R.I. Dept. of Environmental Management, we are setting out to achieve these goals here on Aquidneck Island, and undertaking rigorous program evaluation to assess results and implement program improvements for application throughout Southeast New England and elsewhere in the U.S.
