‘A game-changer’ | DelNature celebrates Carney’s renewed efforts to fund Clean Water Trust

Delaware’s natural waterways are polluted. We know that 90% of our waterways are polluted; 100 miles of fish consumption advisories in Delaware; one acre of tidal wetlands is lost daily in our region. We also have rising waters and increased flooding,” said Emily Knearl, Director of Advocacy for the Delaware Nature Society Wednesday. “So if you’re talking about our natural waterways, they need additional support, they need additional protections, they need additional funding.” On Wednesday, Knearl reacted to Governor John Carney’s renewed promise to invest $50 million into a Clean Water Trust Fund as part of his budget proposal to take place Thursday, January 28, 2021.  To learn more click link here .
