UDC Awards River Clean – up Grants

NARROWSBURG – The Upper Delaware Council, Inc. (UDC) approved $4,072 to support river and shoreline  clean-up projects during its May 7 monthly meeting.

The individual award amounts based on applications submitted by five of the UDC’s member municipalities are:

  • Damascus Township – $1,000
  • Town of Tusten – $900
  • Town of Lumberland – $775
  • Lackawaxen Township – $736
  • Town of Highland -$661

Clean-up projects must be completed by August 21, 2015 in order to be eligible for the one-time reimbursement payment.

This is the second year that the UDC non-profit organization has opted to designate a portion of its federal funding allocation as received through the National Park Service Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River budget to help subsidize litter removal from the bi-state river and its banks.

The goal is to encourage the coordination of local clean-ups to help maintain the pristine quality of the 73.4-miles from the confluence of the East and West Branches of the Delaware below Hancock downstream to Railroad Bridge No. 2 near Sparrowbush that was designated for protection under the National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act in 1978.
