Rhode Island has agreed to fall in line amid claims that a decade of neglecting its storm water drainage network has sullied state waters.
"The Rhode Island Department of Transportation (RIDOT) has ignored its obligation to the people of Rhode Island to protect the waterways of this state," U.S. Attorney Peter Neronha said in a statement Thursday. "Instead, through its neglect and indifference—through its failure to inspect and maintain its storm water run-off system—RIDOT has contributed to the pollution of those waters."Image: rhodeisland.jpg Publication Date: October 23, 2015
