Delaware Contemplation

The Delaware River is a source of hydroelectric power and an important waterway. It is navigable by large, oceangoing vessels as far inland as Philadelphia, PA. and by smaller vessels to Trenton, New Jersey. The Chesapeake and Delaware Canal connects the Delaware River below Wilmington, Delaware, with Chesapeake Bay. The canal is navigable by oceangoing vessels. Through the Delaware River Basin Commission, created in 1961, the federal government and the four Basin states-New York, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware-jointly manage Basin assets and problems.

Sections of the Delaware River are particularly scenic. These include the Catskills between New York and Pennsylvania, known as the Upper Delaware, and the area between New Jersey and Pennsylvania that makes up the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area.

Have a Scenic Day!<:))
