Residents and visitors to the Upper Delaware River region can show their support for water conservation by taking a quick and easy online pledge to help protect our lakes, rivers, and streams from pollution.
The pledge is part of a new online educational resource called Clear Choices, Clean Water: My Delaware River. It is an easy-to-use interactive website with suggestions everyone can implement to conserve water.
To take the pledge, simply go to the website and choose one of four options: Water Conservation; Volunteer Service; Native Plants; and Lawn Fertilizer.
Once you select your area of interest, click on Make a Difference, TAKE A PLEDGE and follow the prompts from there.
Website visitors who take a pledge will “put themselves on the map” to see the impact their actions are having on nearby rivers and streams, and see what actions their neighbors are taking to protect clean water.
“We all rely on the clean waters of the Upper Delaware for our clean drinking water and for the wonderful quality of life and strong economy we enjoy in this region,” said Sue Currier, Executive Director of the Delaware Highlands Conservancy. “We’re excited to be part of this initiative to help individuals learn more about everyday actions they can take to make a big difference for the future of our lands and waters.”
“Clear Choices, Clean Water: My Delaware River” is a cooperative effort among the Delaware Highlands Conservancy; The Nature Conservancy-PA; Wildlands Conservancy; Pocono Heritage Land Trust; and the Brodhead Watershed Association.
The initiative is also supported by funding from the William Penn Foundation and by the DCNR Community Conservation Partnerships Program funding through the Environmental Stewardship (Growing Greener) Fund administered through the PA Environmental Council’s Pocono Forest & Waters Conservation Landscape Program.Visit the Clear Choices, Clean Water: My Delaware River website for more information.
