We need your help

Our waterways are precious

Our streams and rivers provide drinking water, opportunities for fishing, swimming or boating, water for agriculture and business, and are a home for wildlife.

94% of our waterways are pollluted

Delaware's waters are degraded by polluted runoff from development and agriculture, wastewater discharges, and changes to our landscapes.

Our waterways need volunteer monitoring

Volunteers are needed because it is impossible for government agencies to survey all our waters on a regular basis. Volunteers can perform this vital work, locating problems that would otherwise go unnoticed or documenting areas where our waters are improving. Small actions can collectively make a big difference.
