For optimum safety, all UDC participants will be required to wear a U.S. Coast Guard approved personal flotation device when they are on the water for the duration of the trip.

Its voting members are the local New York towns and Pennsylvania townships which border on the river, as well as the State of New York, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and the Delaware River Basin Commission in a non-voting capacity.
