On June 16th we attended the DEM RI Rivers Council meeting in Providence. The focus of the meeting that was of special interest to us was the protection and restoration of our drinking water supply sources (both surface and groundwater) as well as protection and restoration of the nearshore water on our beaches. The group was excited to hear that we will be re-energizing the Aquidneck Island Watershed Council this year. Taking good care of the water on this island is something we can easily do by working together. With a focus exclusively on Aquidneck Island, there are plenty of ways to get involved with our efforts for (1) data collection, (2) identifying issues and (3) taking action.
