Abstract

The Delaware River Basin (DRB) in the coastal mid-Atlantic region of the United States covers 12,700 mi2 of primarily forested land. The DRB is home to 7.2 million people, and an additional 7 million people in New York City and northern New Jersey rely on surface water diverted from the DRB for their water supply. Major watershed issues in the DRB are urbanization and forest fragmentation, abiotic and biotic stressors, diminished condition of forest soils and plants, and invasive exotic species.
