More than 15 million people rely on the Delaware River every day for clean drinking water. What they may not realize is that the availability of affordable, exceptionally clean water is a direct result of the abundance of forests upstream in the Delaware River Basin. Today’s good water quality helps keep source water treatment costs down for drinking water providers and industrial users alike.

April '12 Update

The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) recently released the results of a comprehensive study that examines trends in water use among various user sectors. The study, led by David Sayers, Supervisor of Information Technology and Water Use Section at DRBC, has been several years in the making and was presented at WRA’s Fall Conference on November 2, 2011. Trends in water consumption and use were developed for over a 30-year period for major individual users and were grouped and totaled according to sector. Water use among public water suppliers was of particular interest given that DRBC is implementing a water accountability rule in 2012.

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission held a public meeting May 6 in Carneys Point, NJ to discuss plans by PSEG Nuclear to file an early site permit application, one of the first steps the utility would need to take to build a fourth reactor at its Artificial Island nuclear generating complex in Salem County. PSEG Nuclear currently operates the Salem 1, Salem 2 and Hope Creek reactors at its Artificial Island site in Lower Alloways Creek Township. The site is the second largest commercial nuclear generating complex in the U.S. If a fourth reactor were added, it would become the nation’s largest.
