Your eyes, ears and voice for Narragansett Bay
From our very first battle to prevent an oil refinery from being built along the shores of Tiverton, Rhode Island, Save The Bay has been working to prevent laws, policies, ill-conceived proposals that threaten the health of the Bay and to champion laws and policies that protect the Bay and the right of every citizen to access the shoreline. We work in the halls of local and state government to support legislation aimed at improving water quality, that funds habitat restoration and climate adaptation programs, and that strengthens transparency in environmental governance. We hold state and federal agencies accountable for enforcing the laws that protect Narragansett Bay by shining light on both chronic and immediate pollution issues, and, when necessary, taking legal action. We are the citizens’ watchdog—and the eyes, ears and voice—for Narragansett Bay.Save The Bay was founded on the community’s desire to protect our most precious resource — Narragansett Bay – and our work is paying off. Today the Bay is cleaner and healthier, with a balance of uses, and it continues to be an economic driver for our region.
