The bipartisan Delaware River Watershed Caucus gives a voice to the funding and conservation needs throughout the watershed.

“I have long advocated for more federal funding for the Delaware River Watershed to improve the lives of our communities and our natural habitats. The onus is on us to invest in conservation, and American innovation is our best chance to improve environmental policies, encourage stewardship, and grow the economy here in our Basin,” said Rep. Fitzpatrick. “I’m honored to co-chair this bipartisan caucus and look forward to diligently working to advance bipartisan coordination on marquee conservation programs throughout the Delaware River Watershed.”

The Delaware River Basin generates $25 billion in annual economic activity and contributes $21 billion worth of ecosystem goods and services each year. The watershed touches 23 congressional districts across four states.
