Coalition for the Delaware River Watershed

Coalition for the Delaware River Watershed The Coalition for the Delaware River Watershed was formed to help protect and restore the Delaware River, its tributaries, and surrounding landscapes.

We work in the 4 watershed states: DE, NJ, NY, and PA. The purpose is plain – a clean Delaware for future generations. To achieve it we need to work together to protect nature, control pollution, and keep our water safe for children, families, and all whose lives and livelihoods depend on clean water. Organizations in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Maryland make up the community

Hello all! For those of you with private wells that may be or may become contaminated, there is a bill in the General Assembly to provide grants for residential drinking water filtration systems through the Clean Water Fund. This money is already set aside and would require no additional spending, but would preserve the health of our friends and neighbors. We're trying to get it some attention so it actually gets a vote this year. https://actionnetwork.org/letters/clean-water-now-delaware-cant-wait?fbclid=IwAR3lNHpa8sZQPC0T81WFMuiCSQQSU1tPgD9oICz650Y1sAfLWk3BX38i8Yo

The Delaware River Basin Restoration Program has become a national model for voluntary, incentive-driven landscape conservation. Across the watershed, partners are working together to identify, prioritize, and implement projects that will move us toward a more sustainable future for fish, wildlife, and people. At Thousand Acre Marsh in Delaware this week, I was honored to join Senator Tom Carper, Kelly Knutson from Coalition for the Delaware River Watershed, The Nature Conservancy's Emily Knearl, National Wildlife Federation National Wildlife Federation's Colin O'Mara, and others to talk about this incredible partnership that's only growing stronger thanks to new funds made available through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Together, we can work toward a future where clean water, healthy fish and wildlife habitat, access to nature, and communities safe from flooding are a reality for all.

Lake Gerar is a beautiful spot, right next to the beach in Government Offices-City City of Rehoboth Beach City of Rehoboth Beach, Delaware. President Joe Biden vacations here! Delaware DNREC Delaware DNREC Climate, Coastal and Energy National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has excellent signage next to the lake advising people on how to help protect water quality! A new playground is being installed a few steps from the lake, slightly uphill, so runoff will go from the playground right into the lake. Will this playground have non-toxic natural surfacing, like engineered wood fiber (EWF)? Or, will it be paved with toxic tires and other problematic synthetic materials with poured in place (PIP)? Tires : hot enough to burn children; heat islands; high PAH levels, 6PPPD (proven to kill Coho Salmon), potential heavy metals, and a boat-load of carcinogens.
