River Of The Year

On April 15, the Delaware River received national recognition as River of the Year in 2020 by American Rivers.   Click Here to watch a video of the recognition.

American Rivers gave the Delaware this honor to recognize its momentous progress for water quality, river restoration and community revitalization.

Key to this success are the countless local individuals and groups who have worked for decades on the river’s behalf. The progress on the Delaware illustrates the power of partnership and collaboration.

Millions of people rely on clean drinking water from the Delaware River, in our region and downstream in New York City and Philadelphia.

“The Delaware River is a national success story,” said Bob Irvin, President and CEO of American Rivers. “The River of the Year honor recognizes the hard work of many local advocates who understand that a healthy Delaware River is vital to the health of millions of people. The Delaware shows how a healthy river can be an engine for thriving communities.”
