The primary focus of our OCEAN program is improving water quality. This program is a year-round, volunteer led, weekly water monitoring initiative that directly empowers the community to provide monitoring data. The data is then used in decision making as part of a sound water quality management plan that includes regular water quality testing, timely identification of point and non-point source of pollutants, and effective remediation. We extend our sincere appreciation to our volunteers and citizen scientists who have helped make this program a success throughout the years.
In 2019, our team collected 951 water samples throughout 20 locations on Aquidneck Island to monitor our local water quality to ensure our beaches are swimmable and fishable, and our ponds and reservoirs require minimal treatment.
