The Water Resources Agency’s goal is to sharpen the focus of its public service and provide water policy assistance to governments in Delaware, New Castle County, Wilmington, and Newark. This public service role is significant to the mission of the College of Arts & Sciences and the School of Public Policy & Administration (SPPA), the University of Delaware’s public policy school. WRA receives support from governments to provide water-resources assistance to the public with regard to water supply, water quality, and watershed planning and management.
WRA’s public service areas include:
In addition, WRA staff and students take active leadership roles and/or participate in several water-related organizations and programs.
