The Council approved the funding at the March 11 semi-monthly meeting in Providence. Projects approved for funding include four salt marsh restoration projects, three anadromous fish passage projects, one coastal upland restoration, and one equipment request for RI Department of Environmental Management (RI DEM).
The RI Department of Environmental Management received $5,000 for excavator and flail mower repairs. This low ground pressure equipment is used statewide for mosquito abatement and control and wetland restoration.
