River Management Plan
The Final River Management Plan, dated November 1986, for the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River is available as a pdf file on-line at the National Park Service Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River website. (Note that the pdf file is 221 pages and 19.9 MB in size, so it may take awhile to download.)
For a pdf copy of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River Final River Management Plan, dated November 1986, on a CD, please contact the UDC office by phone at 845-252-3022 or email.
The Design Handbook, was originally printed in 1990 and was recently updated in 2014. The handbook is based on a set of federal guidelines, the Upper Delaware Land and Water Use Guidelines (often referred to as only Guidelines), that apply within the river corridor. It explains these technical guidelines using plain English and lots of illustrations. But the Land and Water Use Guidelines remain the definitive source and we recommend that you refer to pages 114-134 of the Final River Management Plan. Note that contact information in the Handbook may be outdated.
PROJECT REVIEW WORKBOOK
The Upper Delaware Councils 1988 Project Review Workbook is the main document used to perform substantial conformance and project review for member towns. Outlined is the process and procedure for review to ensure development remains consistent with the intent of the River Management Plan, Land and Water Use Guidelines and the Upper Delaware Legislation.

The main stem of the Delaware River extends 330 miles from the confluence of its East and West Branches near Hancock, NY to the mouth of the Delaware Bay. While almost 7% of the nation’s population relies on the Delaware Basin’s waters for drinking and industrial use, the watershed drains only 0.4% of the continental U.S. land area. In all, the basin comprises 13,539 square miles, including portions of Delaware, New Jersey, New York, and Pennsylvania.
