Our look at the
DRBC
Delaware River Basin Commission

 
The Delaware River runs 330 miles from the river's headwaters near Hancock, NY to the Delaware Bay (410 miles if you consider its longest branch). When you combine water uses for drinking, agricultural and industrial activities, over 15 million people rely on water from the Delaware River basin.

The Delaware River basin drains 13, 539 square miles from Pennsylvania (50%), New Jersey (23%), New York (19%) and Delaware (8%). The Delaware River forms the PA-NJ border, and part of the PA-NY border.

In 1961, President Kennedy and the governors of Delaware, New Jersey, New York and Pennsylvania signed legislation to create the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) to manage the Delaware River basin, with the US Army Corps of Engineers serving as the federal representative.

The DRBC oversees programs for water supply allocation, water quality protection, regulatory review for permitting, watershed planning and water conservation initiatives, recreation, flood loss reduction and drought management.
 

These agencies and companies get all or part of the drinking water they provide directly from the Delaware:

Easton City Water Treatment Plant

Morrisville Municipal Authority

New Jersey American Water Western Division (Delran)
