The Urban Pond Procession Urban Pond Procession, a Brown SRP community partner, supports efforts for cleaning up Mashapaug Pond and the lower Pawtucket River in Providence, R.I. They also hold an annual community event to celebrate the health of the Pawtucket River, shown above.

The Brown University Superfund Research Program (SRP) held an event June 3, 2013 in appreciation of its community partners.  The event included presentations by scientists and posters by students that described Brown SRP research and outreach and its benefits to Rhode Island communities.

Brown SRP scientists, faculty, staff, and students also heard first hand of the many proud accomplishments and daunting challenges facing community and Tribal partners.

“At this event, it was clear that the Brown SRP is invested in supporting an amazing number of community partners and providing a unique forum for these partners to network,” said Beth Anderson, SRP program analyst and event attendee.

Community presenters included representatives from Miriam Hospital, Hospitals for a Healthy Environment in Rhode Island Coalition, the Environmental Justice League of Rhode Island, Urban Pond Procession, Woonasquatucket River Watershed Council, Blackstone River Watershed Council, Rhode Island Indian Council, and Environmental Protection and Natural Resources for the Narragansett Indian Tribe.

Brown SRP works with community-based organizations on environmental health and justice issues, education, regulation, and cleanup. It is dedicated to increasing environmental health and environmental justice education.
