Arsenic Data Compilation Report


Delaware River Watershed: Delaware Water Gap to Washington Crossing

This arsenic report will be of interest and value to the municipalities and anyone living or working within the Delaware River watershed. Please join us for this interesting report and discussion.

The goal of the data compilation project is to establish a baseline for arsenic concentrations in surface water and groundwater along this reach of the River.

The report was prepared for the Lower Delaware Wild and Scenic River Management Council.
