Tell Congress: Fund the Delaware River Basin Restoration Program
The Delaware River Basin supplies drinking water to over 15 million people across four states, including New Jersey and Pennsylvania, which is why protecting this water source matters for our health and our future. The Delaware River Basin also provides habitat for over 200 species of fish and serves an important source of eastern oyster, blue crab, and the largest population of American horseshoe crabs in the world.
Congress needs to hear from you in support of the Delaware River Basin Restoration Program (DRBRP) before they vote at the end of September 2018! The DRBRP is a non-regulatory program that will dedicate federal funds to improve water quality, increase wildlife habitat, reduce flood damage, and enhance recreational activities along the Delaware River.
Last fiscal year, Congress made history when they approved $5 million for the DRBRP. This year, we are urging Congress to increase funding and support $6 million for the DRBRP to address key issues facing the Delaware River Basin.
