Water Quality Standards of the Delaware River Basin
The objective of the Clean Water Act is to maintain the chemical, physical, and biological integrity of our Nation’s waters1. What exactly does that look like for the Delaware River Basin? Join us for this peer call to learn about water quality standards and how the chemical, physical, and biological parameters compare across the four Basin states and the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC). We will facilitate discussions to explore how the standards could come into play at your organization. Presenters include Dr. Ron MacGillivray of DRBC, Erin Stretz of The Watershed Institute, Adam Griggs of River Network, and Ellen Kohler of University of Maryland’s Water Finance Center. All knowledge levels are welcome!
This peer call is part of a Clean Water Act educational series that River Network has been developing. Keep an eye out for a Clean Water Act 101 video coming out soon, with support from Resource Media. For additional background on water quality standards in the Delaware, check out Resource Media’s storymap and River Network’s Recreational Uses paper.
