The long-term goal of the White Clay Creek watershed project is to restore shad and migratoryfish passage and habitat, increase spawning areas, and benefit the resident fish in the 107-sq.-mi. watershed. To achieve this, WRA conducted a feasibility study for restoring fish passage to the federally designated National Wild and Scenic White Clay Creek. This project is funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation (NFWF) and is one of 17 projects being undertaken by a number of regional organizations that are striving to improve the environment of the Delaware Estuary— the tidal portion of the Delaware River.
