The Delaware River Watershed: Protecting Today and Tomorrow

  • Camden County College 601 Cooper Street Camden, NJ, 08102 United States (map)

The Delaware River Watershed spans four states, contains vital ecological resources, is home to more than eight million residents and provides drinking water to millions more. As the region faces stress from pollution, overuse and a changing global climate, recent moves in Washington D.C. to change federal regulations are also complicating the picture; questions abound on both the quantity and quality of the area’s water supplies.

At this NJ Spotlight/State Impact event, our panel of experts will examine the impacts of the changing regulations and take a closer look at both how and if state governments and policymakers should respond to growing challenges in managing these resources. 

Admission is free, but registration is required.

Continental breakfast will be served.

Carol Collier, Senior Advisor for Watershed Management and Policy, The Academy of Natural Sciences, Drexel University; Former Executive Director, Delaware River Basin.
