The Wastewater Treatment Facility and Water Pollution Control Division serves East Providence and Barrington RI as a pollution deterrent and sewage facility. It is down the coast from the Bucklin Point facility and across the water from the Ponham Lighthouse. Located in Narragansett Bay and in the center of this photograph, the lighthouse was operated by the U.S. Coast Guard from the time it was built in 1871 until it was deactivated in 1974.
