Our partnership engages the key organizations responsible for managing Aquidneck Island’s water resources.

The municipalities of Newport, Portsmouth and Middletown, RI, share responsibility for Island watersheds, while AIPC, the Aquidneck Land Trust (ALT) and Clean Ocean Access (COA) are the three non-profit organizations with Island-wide environmental missions. In addition, we will engage state agencies such as the RI Department of Environmental Management (RIDEM), which has expressed strong support for Island Waters, and the Departments of Transportation (RIDOT) and Health. Through this grant, we hope to take advantage of EPA Region I’s technical expertise, as well.
