IMPORTANT INFORMATION IN RESPONSE TO CORONAVIRUS
The Narragansett Bay Commission (NBC) has limited access to its offices to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. Beginning Monday, March 16, 2020, NBC will restrict customer and visitor access to all NBC facilities, including the corporate office at One Service Road, Providence, until further notice. While the corporate office is closed, customers are encouraged to call Customer Service at (401) 461-8828 from 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. or email email@example.com. Customers may also visit the agency’s website at www.narrabay.com for on-line bill payment and account management. All transactions except the acceptance of cash payments and site visits can be completed through NBC’s automated phone service or on-line.
During this time, NBC will suspend water service terminations and collection calls arising from non-payment.
NBC is committed to its environmental and public health mission to deliver safe and reliable wastewater collections and treatment service, while protecting the health of its employees and customers.

You deserve clean water...
We're giving it to you.
In 2017, as a result of improved water quality in the upper Bay largely due to the success of CSO Phases I & II, the RIDEM removed the rain restrictions to shellfishing in Conditional Area B and relaxed the restrictions in Conditional Area A. In addition, bathing beach closures have decreased dramatically since 2014.
Phase III facilities as originally designed included another deep rock tunnel through Pawtucket and Central Falls, terminating at the Bucklin Point Wastewater Treatment Facility. In response to the USEPA's recent guidance documents on affordability and integrated planning, the NBC undertook a re-evaluation of Phase III in 2013, convening a group of stakeholders to provide review and input. The project was approved by the RIDEM in 2018, with construction on various components slated to begin as early as 2020. Learn more about the Combined Sewer Overflow Project!

Under virtually every street in the NBC service area is a sewer pipe that carries away unwanted wastewater from homes, schools, businesses and industries to one of the Narragansett Bay Commission's two wastewater treatment facilities - the Field's Point facility in Providence, and the Bucklin Point facility in East Providence.Contact Us
