        Delaware River Main stem river is miles long –“shared” throughout its length Dra square miles of watershed. ~15 million people (about 5% of the U.S. population) rely on the waters of the Delaware River Basin Water withdrawal in the Basin = billion gallons a day Contributes over $21B in economic value to the Region. A watershed is all of the land that water moves across or under while flowing to a specific body of water. A watershed includes the land and the water in it as well as the plants, animals and humans who live and work there. Every area of the earth in which water falls on land is a watershed; so no matter where you live, you live in a watershed!

Delaware River ports employ 4, workers who earn $ million and generate $ billion in economic output. Some good web sites about the Delaware in general is the Delaware River Recreation Site, Delaware Water Gap, the National Park Service, and the Delaware River Basin Commission. Although quite easy to paddle, probably more people have died on the Delaware than all the other rivers listed on this web site combined, due the the caliber of paddlers.

      Water quality in the Delaware River, USA, has improved significantly since the Fed-eral Water Pollution Control Act (), Clean Water Act of , and authorization of the Delaware River Basin Commission Compact in Initial economic analysis by the Federal Water Pollution Administration in concluded the multimillion dollar pollution. The basin’s waterways also provide drinking water for more than 15 million people. Overall, the Delaware River basin provides $21 billion in ecosystem goods and services per year, including recreational, commercial and water quality benefits. In short, preserving clean, healthy and ecologically vibrant waterways in the Delaware River basin is.

The Delaware River. Before we talk about the basin, let's talk about the river. The Delaware is the longest un-dammed river in the United States east of the Mississippi, extending miles from the confluence of its East and West branches at Hancock, N.Y. to the mouth of the Delaware Bay where it meets the Atlantic Ocean.

The USGS' National Water Census quantifies water supply and demand across the country, with the goal of achieving a sustainable water strategy to help meet the nation's water needs. The Delaware River Basin was a focus area of this USGS water availability initiative, and a three-year study was completed.

The Water Resources Association of the Delaware River Basin (WRA) was established in by representatives from industry, public and private utilities and other organizations that had wide-ranging interests in water resources and sought to ensure public participation in the management of the Delaware River and its tributaries.

The purpose of the Commission is to bring the Delaware River under collective and balanced control, and to ensure fair usage by the states. To this end, the Commission conducts programs related to water quality protection, water supply allocation and water conservation, regulatory review and permitting, watershed planning, drought management, flood mitigation and loss reduction, and.

The Upper Delaware River contains some of the cleanest water in the eastern United States. The Upper Delaware's consistently high water quality provides habitat to diverse and well-balanced biological communities.

The upper segment of the river is also unique among large rivers in the East due to its relatively cold temperatures.

The Delaware River Basin Restoration Program builds on momentum for collaborative conservation in the watershed by supporting partners through federally appropriated funding for projects in four key areas: clean water, habitat, recreation, and flow management.

Water resource management in the basin is regulated by the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) and other entities. This program will coordinate with existing regulatory activities, but will focus on non-regulatory efforts to support the demands on the water resources of the basin and to enhance tolerence of potential drought and flood.

The Delaware River Basin Source Water Collaborative, an affiliate of the national Source Water Collaborative, is a basin-wide partnership to identify and explore issues impacting water resource sustainability for the more than 15 million people who rely on surface and ground water from the basin for drinking water.
