    the Narragansett Bay Commission NBC Louise Durfee who later became DEM Director under Governor Sundlun in the early 1990 s was the attorney for NBC who negotiated the takeover of the system from the City of Providence to NBC in the early 1980 s ECRI also worked during the 1980 s with DEM Director Robert Bendick who served under both Governors Garrahy and Diprete to improve enforcement and to revitalize state parks and beaches The 1980 s In the early and mid 1980 s ECRI addressed state water supply policy by convincing Governor Garrahy in 1984 that a major study of the state s water supply was needed particularly to determine if the Big River Reservoir should be built In 1988 toward the completion of the study the EPA vetoed the Big River Reservoir project for twenty years stating that the wetlands loss was not warranted given the state s population size and realistic projections of population growth The RI Water Resources Board principal sponsor of the Big River Reservoir originally projected the state population to be 1 300 000 in 2000 The state population was 1 047 000 in 2000 In the late 1980 s ECRI addressed state solid waste policy Only Rhode Island and New Hampshire did not have bottle bills on the northeastern section of the North American continent The other New England states New York and the eastern Canadian provinces did have returnable bottle laws In 1985 ECRI did manage to get a bottle bill through the House of Representatives but could not win over the Senate leadership Determining the right mix of recycling landfilling and incineration became the major policy issue No state yet had mandatory curbside recycling parts of Ontario province did The environmental community became split between whether to support having one state incinerator or not ECRI was at the forefront of negotiating having Rhode Island be the first state to adopt mandatory curbside recycling Some folks agreed not to fight one incinerator to bring about this achievement Rhode Island did become the first state to adopt mandatory curbside recycling After this occurred about half the environmental community successfully persisted in convincing the General Assembly to ban municipal waste incineration in Rhode Island and set a seventy percent recycling goal for the state In the late 1980 s and early 1990 s ECRI also addressed DEM reorganization and fighting severe state budget cutbacks at DEM by Governor Sundlun ECRI and other parties successfully convinced the General Assembly to fund a DEM reorganization study at the 150 000 level and then passed a DEM reorganization bill in June 1990 but the Sundlun Administration elected in November 1990 failed to implement the legislation In regard to DEM budget cutbacks Governor Sundlun wanted to set the state general fund budget for DEM at under 12 million in 1993 and DEM Director Louise Durfee resigned in protest The state general fund contribution to the DEM budget in 2002 is 32 million The 1990 s In the 1990
