Newport’s harbor and beaches are on the road to recovery after years of illegal pollution from Middletown and Newport. In 2007 our staff joined local citizens to file a Clean Water Act citizens’ suit against the towns to stop their pollution. In 2010 and 2011, we won strong settlements requiring the towns to clean up their act.
