The Delaware River Watershed: New Interactive Pollution Map

By John Rumpler
Senior Director, Clean Water for America Campaign and Senior Attorney

The Delaware River watershed is a vital source of clean water for drinking, wildlife, and recreation. Its waterways also face a variety of threats – from day-to-day challenges such as polluted runoff and industrial waste, to rare but catastrophic events such as oil spills.

With support from the William Penn Foundation, Environment America Research & Policy Center has created a first-of-its-kind interactive map of the Basin, which pinpoints threats to water quality. You’re invited to learn more about this new resource during a webinar presented by Environment America.

During the webinar, presenters from Environment America and partners walk through the map’s available data. There will also be time for discussion and idea sharing on common-sense solutions for preserving the Delaware River watershed.
