The Clean Water Campaign and Delaware’s Division of Watershed Stewardship issued this video to help explain how people can help mitigate the various pollutants that can affect overall watershed health.
Thanks to all the volunteers who came out and participated in the 24th Annual Christina River Watershed Cleanup on Saturday, April 18!
Gliding through rolling hills, farms and forests, large and small towns, the Brandywine, White Clay, and Red Clay Creeks, and Christina River constitute the watershed of the Christina River Basin, before continuing into the Delaware River. This watershed provides more than 75% of the water supply for residents and businesses in New Castle County, Delaware.
The Christina River Watershed Cleanup’s mission has always been the removal of man-made debris from within this beautiful watershed, while raising public awareness for pollution prevention. Since the Cleanup began in 1992, more than 330 tons of tires, appliances, household items, and other trash have been cleared from within the watershed.
