National Estuary Program (NEP)

State of the Bay Report for Partnership for the Delaware Estuary

Every three to five years, the Partnership for the Delaware Estuary works with outside experts to take a comprehensive look at the health of the Delaware Estuary and its watershed. This helps the National Estuary Program track the progress it is making implementing its long-term “Delaware Estuary Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan.” The results are presented here, for 2008, as a special issue of “Estuary News.”
