Watershed Counts is produced by the Narragansett Bay Region Indicator Development Workgroup. The workgroup came together during the fall and winter of 2010 to focus on the development of environmental indicators for assessing and reporting on the condition of Narragansett Bay and its watershed. The group recognized and built from the long and rich history of collaborative work in the Narragansett Bay community, with contributions from many agencies, organizations, and university research labs.  The Indicator Development Workgroup started with collaboration among URI's Coastal Institute, the Narragansett Bay Estuary Program, and the RI Environmental Monitoring Collaborative of the Bays, Rivers, & Watersheds Coordination Team, and has now grown to include state agencies, NGOs, and university scientists.
