(above) “On Aquidneck Island, it’s powerful to see the partnerships of the community and nonprofits,” Curt Spalding, the administrator for the EPA’s New England region. “…It’s time for us to think on a regional scale…this requires a systemic approach.”

Last Thursday night over 170 community members joined the Island Waters Partnership to learn about and discuss water quality issues on Aquidneck Island. Thanks to all who attended!
