The Rhode Island Government’s Department of Environmental Management (DEM) is conducting a habitat restoration project this month at the Beach Pond boating access site in Exeter.

The project is part of DEM’s continuing efforts to restore and protect water quality and native habitat at Beach Pond.

Work started earlier this week and is expected to be completed by early June.

The project includes the placement of rocky material to stabilize the shoreline and prevent runoff from entering the pond.

“The Beach Pond boat ramp will remain open to the public during the habitat restoration work although, on occasion, the ramp may be unavailable for a brief time to conduct certain project activities,” said DEM in its release.

The contractor for the project is RICON Construction of Cranston. Funding is being provided through the US Fish & Wildlife Service Sport Fish Restoration program.
