RI Fixed Site Network

The Rhode Island Fixed Site Network is a consortium of agencies in Rhode Island that maintain a set of water quality instruments throughout several locations in Narragansett Bay. The Narragansett Bay Commission is just one of 4 agencies that maintain these instruments. The other agencies include the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management, the Narragansett Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve, and the University of Rhode Island Graduate School of Oceanography. Other organizations in Rhode Island that are concerned partners for water quality in the Narragansett Bay are the Narragansett Bay Estuary Program, the Rhode Island Bays, Rivers, and Watershed Coordination Team and the joint agency Insomniacs Dissolved Oxygen Survey. For information on these organizations please see their websites listed below.

For more information on the Fixed Site Network itself such as a map of other water quality monitoring stations and past data from the entire network please see the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management website.
