State of Narragansett Bay & Its Watershed

The 2017 State of Narragansett Bay and Its Watershed technical report is now available.

The Narragansett Bay Estuary Program brought together more than 50 practitioners from universities, organizations, and agencies in a bi-state effort by Massachusetts and Rhode Island to collaborate on the 2017 State of Narragansett Bay and Its Watershed technical report. This report presents and tracks 24 indicators in order to:

  • evaluate key stressors to Narragansett Bay and its watershed;
  • assess the chemical, physical, and biological conditions,
  • describe past and recent trends;
  • look ahead to potential future changes; and
  • identify data and research essential to advancing our understanding of these changes.
