The Delaware River Basin drains the lands surrounding the Delaware River and its tributaries, which stretch from the Catskill Mountains in New York to the Delaware Estuary and eventually flow into the Atlantic Ocean (see Figure 1). The river is fed by 216 tributaries and drains 13,539 square miles of land within four states: Delaware, New York, New Jersey, and Pennsylvania. The water resources within the Delaware River Basin are managed in part by the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) under the authority of the Delaware River Basin Compact (P.L. 87-328). The compact was signed by states in the basin and ratified by Congress in 1961.
