The Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC), formed through a Compact in 1961 amongst the federal government and the States of NY, NJ, PA and DE, has worked with its state and federal partners to improve water quality, and the aquatic life that depends on it, within the Delaware Estuary for more than 60 years. The Commission reached an important milestone in 2022 with the publication of a draft “Analysis of Attainability,” the purpose of which was to analyze how improved dissolved oxygen levels to support enhanced aquatic life uses may be attained within the portion of the estuary from Philadelphia/Camden to Wilmington that currently experiences occasional episodes of low dissolved oxygen during critical summer periods. The Analysis of Attainability provides a specific road map of ammonia allocations that will significantly improve dissolved oxygen such that fish maintenance and propagation is supported throughout the Estuary. The study represents the culmination of five years of intensive study involving scientific and technical expertise across multiple disciplines, and forms the basis for rulemaking that is currently underway to upgrade the aquatic life use and dissolved oxygen criteria in the estuary.
