RI State Regulatory Agencies

The following compilation of General Laws of Rhode Island relates directly to habitat restoration within the State. The laws primarily focus on enabling legislation of the three primary agencies with authority over the inland and coastal resources where habitat restoration may occur: the Coastal Resources Management Council, the Department of Environmental Management Fish and Wildlife Service, and the Department of Environmental Management Office of Water Resources. In addition, links are offered to various applicable regulations. For specific information on the permitting process in Rhode Island go to Permitting Process.

This list was compiled in February 2001.
