The Town of Richmond seeks to hire a consultant through this Request for Proposals (RFP) to
conduct a restoration and land protection planning assessment of the Beaver River watershed,
a ~20-square mile area situated almost entirely within the limits of this suburban-rural
community in Washington County (“South County”), Rhode Island. The 11-mile long Beaver
River includes high quality, coldwater stream habitat and substantial forested and scrub-shrub
wetlands providing important habitat to a variety of fish (e.g., eastern brook trout, river
herring) and wildlife (e.g., wood turtle, mussels) species, and contributing to high biodiversity in
the Wood-Pawcatuck watershed.
