Island Waters October Update

The Island Waters project is up and running. In October, AIPC met with our project partners –NewportMiddletownPortsmouthAquidneck Land Trust and Clean Ocean Access – to continue developing this three-year program to protect and restore Aquidneck Island’s fresh and salt water from the effects of storm water pollution. The team is now focused on developing a “request for proposals” to hire an engineering firm for technical support, and working with the statewide Green Infrastructure Coalition to develop outreach materials for homeowners, commercial properties, and others to reduce storm water pollution.
