The Coonamessett River restoration project will come under the watchful eyes of the United States Department of Agriculture and the Woods Hole Research Center.
The two organizations will monitor the impact the project has on nitrogen loading in the surrounding watershed. The USDA and Woods Hole Research Center started monitoring nitrogen levels in August. They will compare that data to measurements that will be taken in the spring. The first phase of the Coonamessett River restoration project, an area known as the Lower Bog, is already underway.
