Delaware Basin Forum- March 10th, 2011    

Mon May 16, 2011

Throughout the day of the forum, participants at the Reading location participated in presentations and discussions about issues that impact the water resources of their local communities, watersheds, and water supplies. While the morning presentations provided an overview of local water quality concerns and actions being taken to address them, the afternoon discussions helped to spur new collaborative strategies that can be implemented regionally. The forum also helped to identify some “next steps” for putting some of these ideas into action.
