We have started a Wild and Scenic Rivers study to designate additional tributaries.

This is a three-year study by the National Park Service (NPS) to consider whether additional Delaware River tributaries are eligible and suitable for inclusion in the National Wild and Scenic River System. The LDWS Management Council and its governing body have a Cooperative Agreement with the Delaware River Greenway Partnership to coordinate the Study Committee that includes members from watershed towns, state agencies, and other non-profit organizations. The Study Committee will identify the special values of noted tributaries. The plan is to submit a bill by 2024 or 2025 that will add the tributaries to the Lower Delaware River Wild and Scenic Rivers System. More information:
