NRCS and the Southern Rhode Island Conservation District (SRICD) are sponsoring Public Scoping Meetings to discuss the proposed Wood-Pawcatuck Rivers Watershed Flood Protection project in Washington County and Kent County, Rhode Island, and portions of New London County, Connecticut. 


Representatives from the Local Sponsors and NRCS, along with their consultants, will provide information on the Watershed and Flood Protection program, planning activities to date for the Wood-Pawcatuck Rivers, describe the various alternatives being considered for flood control, answer questions and concerns about the planned activities, and seek public input.

Federal funding has been received to assist the local sponsors in developing the plan but has not yet been secured for the design or construction of these projects.

Persons with disabilities who require accommodations to participate in this meeting should contact the Disability SEPM, Allie Brown, at 401-822-8841 or, or dial 7-1-1 to access telecommunication relay services.
