Watershed

The Delaware River Watershed supplies water to more than 15 million people, or about 5% of the nation's population. It's natural lands both protect clean water and provide a habitat of regional and hemispheric importance. The story of the river includes stories of its people and wildlife that depend on it for survival, the threats to continued sources of clean water, and the river as an economic engine.

The project is funded by The William Penn Foundation.
