Year Published: Estimated use of water in the Delaware River Basin in Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania, The Delaware River Basin (DRB) was selected as a Focus Area Study in by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) as part of the USGS National Water Census. The Water Resources Association of the Delaware River Basin (WRA) was established in by representatives from industry, public and private utilities and other organizations that had wide-ranging interests in water resources and sought to ensure public participation in the management of the Delaware River and its tributaries. The purpose of the Commission is to bring the Delaware River under collective and balanced control, and to ensure fair usage by the states.

A breakthrough in water resources management occurred in when President Kennedy and the governors of Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York for the first time signed concurrent compact legislation into law creating a regional body with the force of law to oversee a unified approach to managing a river system without regard to political boundaries.   The Upper Delaware River contains some of the cleanest water in the eastern United States. The Upper Delaware's consistently high water quality provides habitat to diverse and well-balanced biological communities. The upper segment of the river is also unique among large rivers in the East due to its relatively cold temperatures.   The Delaware River Basin Restoration Program builds on momentum for collaborative conservation in the watershed by supporting partners through federally appropriated funding for projects in four key areas: clean water, habitat, recreation, and flow management.   Water resource management in the basin is regulated by the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) and other entities. This program will coordinate with existing regulatory activities, but will focus on non-regulatory efforts to support the demands on the water resources of the basin and to enhance tolerence of potential drought and flood.
