While almost all of Narragansett Bay is located in Rhode Island, 60% of the watershed that contributes fresh water to the Bay is in Massachusetts. The Narragansett Bay watershed encompasses 1,754 square miles, with 1,024 square miles in Massachusetts. The major Bay tributaries include the Taunton and Blackstone Rivers which are largely in Massachusetts, and the Pawtuxet River watershed, which is entirely in Rhode Island.
Save The Bay’s Narragansett Baykeeper is Mike Jarbeau. By working alongside our government agencies, and sometimes holding them accountable, Mike upholds Save The Bay's goal to protect the Bay and to restore water quality, habitat, and ecological health to the system.
