Upper Delaware Council

  • The Council’s existence evolved from special provisions in the 1978 legislation which designated the
    Upper Delaware River as a component of the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System, and called for
    development of a management plan and a program providing for the coordinated implementation and
    administration of the plan. To that end, the Upper Delaware Council (UDC) was formed in 1988.
