Metadata Updated: April 16, 2021

This project was undertaken in order to gain an overview of the present plans, projects and information base for Delaware Bay with a view to planning and possible future regulation by the Delaware River Basin Commission. It was carried out by the University of Delaware under contract to the Basin Commission with Sea Grant funding matched with a baseline study planning grant from the National Geographic Society.

The geographic area covered by the the study is Delaware Bay and its immediate environs. Delaware Bay is taken to be the water area bounded by New Jersey and Delaware and extending from a line between Capes Henlopen and May up to Liston Point. Of necessity, the report also concerns itself with the contiguous shore areas and other areas exerting, or likely to exert, a major influence on the bay.

The study was divided into two major portions: a sociopolitical one, and an engineering and scientific one. The sociopolitical portion of the study was subcontracted to the Natural ad Historical Resource Associates, who were given access to relevant portions of the unpublished report of the Delaware Governor's Task Force in Coastal and Marine Affairs as well as certain supporting materials. These materials had been prepared by Sate and University of Delaware personnel in response to requests by the Task Force
