The Rhode Island Green Infrastructure Project (RI GRIP) is helping three Rhode Island coastal municipalities – Newport, North Kingstown and Warwick – to design plans featuring green infrastructure tools and techniques for reducing the impacts of flooding and erosion, storms and sea level rise. Green infrastructure refers to the use of plants, rocks, sand and other natural landscaping to absorb and redirect water. It is increasingly being explored and implemented for its potential to provide cost-effective community protection. The project is funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation.
