NEMWI created a map of the Delaware River Basin Watershed showing the new Congressional Districts and elected Representatives for the 113th Congress. Congressional Districts changed throughout the watershed, but the New York portion of the watershed experienced the biggest changes; New York's 20th, 21st, and 24th Congressional Districts are no longer in the watershed. NY remains a big player in Delaware River Basin management, however, with three Districts still in the basin. NEMWI's Delaware River Basin Program helps build sound bipartisan legislative strategies for ecosystem restoration for the four-state watershed (Delaware, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania).
