Wild and Scenic designation places certain restrictions on development along designated rivers. The municipalities bordering this section of the river, with very few exceptions, have passed resolutions supporting the Lower Delaware River Management Plan and requesting that their river segments be designated. The middle and upper portions of the Delaware have already received such designation and the river below Trenton is part of the Delaware Estuary. The Delaware is the last remaining free-flowing major river east of the Mississippi.
What you can do: First, we must thank Senators Lautenberg and Torricelli and Rep. Rush Holt for cosponsoring these bills. Next, write or phone Rep. Chris Smith or Bob Franks, as appropriate, and ask him to vote "yes" on H.R. 2317.
