WaterFire Providence is getting new offices and storage space thanks in part to $800,000 in federal grants.
The grants, part of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Brownfields program, are being awarded to help clean up a site in the West Broadway neighborhood that once housed the U.S. Rubber complex and a local service station.
Governor Lincoln Chafee, Providence Mayor Angel Taveras and all four members of the state's congressional delegation are expected to join EPA officials Monday at a news conference detailing the grants.
WaterFire plans to use the space for offices, equipment maintenance and storage, and to hold educational programs.
The public art display featuring small bonfires on rivers in downtown Providence is held a dozen or more nights annually, drawing up to a million visitors a year.
