Department of Environmental Protection, the City of Philadelphia Water Department and Partnership for the Delaware Estuary; Planned Revision for the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan; Public Listening Session
[46 Pa.B. 4265]
[Saturday, July 30, 2016]
The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary and its partners will be accepting public comments on the planned revision for the Comprehensive Conservation and Management Plan (Plan) for the Delaware Estuary at a listening session to be held on August 11, 2016, at the Department of Environmental Protection's Southeast Regional Office, 2 East Main Street Norristown, PA from 4 p.m. until 7 p.m.
The tidal Delaware River and Bay stretches from Trenton, NJ through Philadelphia, PA to Cape Henlopen, DE, where it joins with the Atlantic Ocean. The estuary relies on clean freshwater from streams extending from four states. The 1996 Plan is a blueprint for protecting and enhancing this resource. Under the guidance of this Plan, environmental organizations and agencies have worked with businesses, schools and farmers on hundreds of projects to reduce and prevent water pollution, and restore fish and wildlife habitat, but it is outdated and needs revision.
The Partnership for the Delaware Estuary and its partners are holding three listening sessions, one in each of the partner states, to inform the public about the revision process and to gather thoughts and ideas from the public to revise the plan. More information about the plan and the listening sessions in New Jersey and Delaware can be found at www.delawareestuary.org.
Preregistration for the listening session is appreciated, and a link to preregister can be found at www.delawareestuary.org. In addition, the agenda and meeting materials for the listening session will be available on this web site. The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) encourages commenters to bring a copy of prepared comments in writing to capture an accurate record of comments.
