Taking Simple Steps Toward Cleaner Rhode Island Waters
Dog poop, lawn chemicals, and oily spills. With every rain, storm drains carry all this pollution directly to local streams, ponds, and Narragansett Bay without treatment. Stormwater pollution is a major problem for RI waters – closing beaches and shellfish beds, destroying wildlife habitat, and threatening drinking water supplies. The good news is that you can be part of the solution!
