Stemming from the Narragansett Bay Estuary Program’s 2019 State of the Blackstone Watershed Workshop, the Blackstone Needs Assessment Project  gathers interests from across the Blackstone River Watershed to identify priority needs that once addressed can enable more high quality projects that benefit the region’s environment, economy, and community.

This project is funded by EPA’s Southeast New England Coastal Watershed Restoration Program.

We are working with partners across both Rhode Island and Massachusetts, from local watershed groups, municipalities, to state and regional level organizations. If you are interesting in joining the mailing list or attending a meeting please email
