The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has selected the WRWC as the fifth pilot watershed funded through the Southeast New England Program (SNEP) addressing coastal water quality issues. This will bring greater attention to urban water quality issues within communities along the Woonasquatucket River watershed (Glocester, North Smithfield, Smithfield, North Providence, Johnston, Providence, and Cranston).

As part of this Pilot Watershed initiative, the EPA is providing $150,000 in funding to support the WRWC in our efforts to improve river water quality, develop a community-centered climate resilience plan, implement sustainable stormwater management, and more.
