Tools & Applications > Watershed Resources Registry- Delaware
The Watershed Resources Registry is an interactive online mapping tool that prioritizes areas for preservation and restoration of wetlands, riparian zones, terrestrial areas, and storm water management control across an entire state. The tool is helpful for a wide variety of purposes but is especially useful for developers, natural resource planners, transportation planners, and others who are required to avoid impacting natural areas or to provide mitigation for any unavoidable impact. The tool has been developed for Delaware, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia (others are exploring feasibility).
The Delaware Registry was a collaborative effort which included staff from Delaware’s Department of Natural Resources and Environmental Control and Department of Transportation, US Environmental Protection Agency Region 3 ,US Army Corps of Engineers Philadelphia District, US Fish and Wildlife Service, US Federal Highway Administration, and Delaware Center for the Inland Bays, among others.
