LINK TO PDF [20 mb]


This Summer 2008 report, from the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary (in which the Philadelphia Water Department is an important participant), details the health of the estuary or tidal portion of the Delaware River, below the falls at Trenton, NJ. The estuary includes all of the Schuylkill River Basin, and this report makes a great companion to A Report on the State of the Schuylkill River Watershed: 2002.
