URI Watershed Watch Monitoring Communities

URI Watershed Watch prides itself as being a "bottom up" organization. We work with community organizations, lake and watershed associations, environmental organizations, municipal conservation commissions, as well as government agencies, in determining monitoring locations. Thus, our
volunteers are out on the water monitoring in 29 of Rhode Island's 39 cities and towns, as well as several in nearby Connecticut.

If you have questions about any of these sites, are interested in helping monitoring one of them, or
are interested in adding new locations, please let us know. We can be contacted by email:
emh@uri.edu, or by phone: (401) 874-2905 (Linda) or (401) 874-4552 (Elizabeth).
