More than 15 million people -- including thousands of Philadelphia-area residents -- depend on the Delaware River for clean, reliable drinking water. However, the Delaware is threatened by sprawl, polluted runoff, and flooding -- and if these problems don't get addressed, water quality will continue to be threatened.

We can restore the Delaware River and protect it for the families, businesses, birds, and other wildlife that call the river and the surrounding creeks and streams home. But it's going to take all four governors of the Delaware River Basin states (New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Delaware) coming together to create a new vision and commit to a plan to keep the Delaware healthy and clean.

Fortunately, Governor Wolf has made protecting Pennsylvania's parks and streams a priority. Sign the petition to urge him to take the next step and stand with our neighboring states to protect the Delaware River Basin so that families, towns, businesses, birds, and wildlife that depend on it can thrive.

Dear Governor Wolf,

One of our state's most important drinking water sources, the Delaware River Watershed, is threatened by overdevelopment, habitat loss, polluted runoff, flooding, and stream erosion, and needs greater attention if we're going to keep this waterway safe and healthy for all the families, communities, birds, and other wildlife that depend on it. You've made protecting Pennsylvania's parks and streams a priority -- thank you! Please commit to working with your fellow governors across the watershed to create a new vision and plan to protect the Delaware and its surrounding waterways for generations to come.
