Who is The Water Resources Association?

The Water Resources Association of the Delaware River Basin (WRA) was established in 1959 by representatives from industry, public and private utilities and other organizations that had wide-ranging interests in water resources and sought to ensure public participation in the management of the Delaware River and its tributaries.

In 1961, the WRA successfully participated in the development of a federal-interstate compact and the creation of the Delaware River Basin Commission. Since then, the WRA has remained active in monitoring activities of the DRBC and other agencies of the four Basin states.

The WRA is a non-profit, non-partisan advocacy and public information organization whose stated MISSION is to promote sound water resources management within the Delaware River Basin. The WRA represents YOU— the water user and anyone dependent or interested in the Basin’s water resources.
