Save The Bay

Rose Amoros

40 years ago, a swimmable and fishable Narragansett Bay was laughable. With the help of our members and volunteers, Save The Bay has made tremendous progress in working for the Bay people want. Conventional pollution from wastewater treatment plants has been reduced by more than 60% since the 1980s, and toxins in wastewater have been reduced by more than 90%, resulting in the return of marine and wildlife as well as clearer, better-smelling water for some. But we still face daunting challenges. Pollution from wastewater, stormwater and power plants continue to put these gains in jeopardy. We need your help.
