The Delaware River has rebounded since the mid-twentieth century. At the time, it was so polluted that it suffered from a 20 mile oxygen dead zone that you could smell from a plane, and there were potential health consequences for those that worked its banks or swam in its waters. Thanks to communities rising up in defense of the Delaware, the passage of environmental protection laws, and the creation of agencies like the Delaware River Basin Commission, the River and many local streams have gotten healthier. People are paddling and fishing on the Delaware River around Philadelphia and finding great ways to explore and enjoy its natural beauty. Are you one of these people? If so, we would like to know how, where, and when you are enjoying the Delaware River and its tributary streams, particularly if you are enjoying the River from Trenton, NJ, through the Philadelphia/Camden reach, down to Wilmington, DE.
