Stormwater Presentation

Clean Ocean Access is hosting a stormwater presentation on Tuesday, Jan. 24, at the Newport Public Library from 6 - 7 p.m. Join Clean Ocean Access to learn more about the results of the Stormwater Pathogens Project, the Island Waters Project, and how residential green infrastructure can reduce stormwater runoff on Aquidneck Island.

The Stormwater Pathogens Project combines analysis of sediment samples and water samples to determine the source of bacteria during wet and dry weather conditions. The results will provide further insight into how bacteria effects water quality at Easton’s Beach.

Island Waters is dedicated to reducing water pollution for residents who rely on surface reservoirs for safe, plentiful drinking water, and visitors that value clean coastal waters for fishing, swimming, sailing and surfing.

This presentation is open to the public with no registration required. For more information, email info@cleanoceanaccess.org.
