Comments Sought on Priority Projects
The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary is seeking public comments on six projects (PDF file) that have been identified by the PDE Alliance as top candidates for its 2013 Priority Projects for the Delaware Estuary list. This group of public and private supporters has chosen these six from over 100 projects in the growing Project Registry based on their importance for the tidal Delaware River and Bay. Your feedback could help shape the final list to be announced in June. Please contact Priscilla Cole by May 23 with comments.
Congratulations, Art Contest Winners!
The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary would like to congratulate this year’s winners of the Green City, Clean Waters Art Contest, sponsored by the Philadelphia Water Department. Look for their artwork on Flickr, YouTube, and advertisements placed inside SEPTA buses and subway cars. And tell your friends on facebook. Together we can all make Philadelphia a greener city with cleaner waters.
Partnership for the Delaware Estuary
The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary is a nonprofit organization established in 1996 to take a leadership role in protecting and enhancing the Delaware Estuary, where fresh water from the Delaware River mixes with salt water from the Atlantic Ocean. It is one of 28 Congressionally designated National Estuary Programs throughout the coastal United States working to improve the environmental health of the nation's estuaries. Its staff works with partners in three states to increase awareness, understanding, and scientific knowledge about the Delaware Estuary, the region's most important cultural, economic, and recreational resource.
The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary, a National Estuary Program, leads science-based and collaborative efforts to improve the tidal Delaware River and Bay, which spans Delaware, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania.
