U.S. Coast Guard Press Release Regarding Fish Trap Dangers

September, 2006

Every week, thousands of vessels cruise the waters just south of Newport. Many may catch a brief glimpse of the barrels that appear to be floating atop the swells, however few realize the danger that lurks just beneath the surface. These barrels are in place to mark the many fish traps that stretch from Sachuest Point to Brenton Reef,                                                                and can turn a day on the water into a day fraught with peril.


June, 2006

This revised notice summarizes Rhode Island's new No-Discharge Compliance Program, which took effect on June 1, 2006 after being modified by several important legislative changes. This notice updates and replaces prior notices on the program issued over the past year.
