Our targeted sub-watersheds work supports conservation in eight action areas and advances protection or restoration of water quality through projects that address one or more of four priority stressors: loss of forested headwaters, stormwater, agricultural run-off, and depletion of underground water supplies.

Grants under this strategy support the Delaware River Watershed Initiative, a multi-year, multi-partner effort that focuses efforts within the eight action areas. By bringing together more than 60 organizations and aligning their work in the same places, setting common goals, and monitoring water quality over time using common standards and protocols, the Initiative is designed to maximize collective impact that can be replicated elsewhere in the watershed.
