The Narragansett Bay Estuary Program is the latest group to award grants that will support water quality projects in the state.
Eight projects that range from improving fish passages to restoring public access to the shoreline will benefit from more than $65,000 in grants. Tom Borden, director of the Narragansett Bay Estuary Program, said the money comes mostly from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Rhode Island Natural History Survey.
“This grant is designed primarily for municipalities and nonprofits and we are able to fund several projects on Aquidneck Island,” said Borden.
Borden said the grants also support projects focused on Wickford Harbor, and the Pawtuxet and Woonasquatucket rivers.
