Clean water is the most important natural resource to the future of Rhode Island, and everyone shares in the responsibility to protect it. Taking actions to protect and restore our water resources has many other benefits. Ms. Paquet will give a presentation about the Aquidneck Island Watershed Plan, which she is currently drafting. This plan will tie together existing efforts and prioritize important actions to protect and restore water quality and aquatic habitats on the Island. In her talk, she will discuss some local water quality conditions, the relationship between land use activities and water quality, the co-benefits of water quality protection, as well as what is being done by government and non-governmental organizations. She will highlight what you can do to prevent water pollution—because it is all connected!
