URI Watershed Watch Research Connections

Research has a central role in the URI Watershed Watch program. It is a scientist-led program, with monitoring and analytical procedures based on scientific research conducted by US Environmental Protection Agency, the US Geological Survey, and applied scientists within a wide range of water resources fields. The state-certified URI Watershed Watch Analytical Laboratory provides analytical services to researchers within and outside of URI. Our monitoring results are widely incorporated by undergraduate, graduate, academic, and agency research efforts. Please contact us if you need data or have a research need.
