The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) has scheduled a set of meetings next week in Bethlehem to get feedback from the public on a draft water resources plan for the basin.
When: Feb. 10, 2004, 2:00 p.m to 4:00 p.m. (registration 1:30 p.m.); and 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (registration 6:30 p.m.)
Where: Iacocca Hall, Mountaintop Campus, Lehigh University (directions can be found on the DRBC's web site at www.drbc.net).
The draft plan is the product of a four-year stakeholder process initiated by the governors of the four states with land draining to the Delaware River and Bay (Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York and Delaware).
A Watershed Advisory Council, whose members represent a broad spectrum of basin interests ranging from business and industry to environmental advocacy groups, worked with DRBC staff and technical advisory committees in compiling the draft plan.
A copy of the plan, along with supporting documents, can be found on the DRBC's web site.
