Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area is restoring natural conditions in and near the Watergate Recreation Site in Hardwick Township, Warren County, New Jersey by removing man-made features such as dams and levees and restoring wetlands, Van Campens Brook, and its floodplain. The project meets a National Park Service requirement to restore wetlands and floodplains equal to the amount that were impacted by the 2013 construction of a nearby high-voltage transmission line (the Susquehanna-Roseland Transmission Line). The Watergate Picnic Area is closed to the public for the duration of construction, and expected to reopen in June 2022.
Historic Buildings Strategy (Draft)
Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area has released a draft Historic Buildings Strategy (HBS) for a 30-day public review and comment period. Comments will be accepted from July 12 through August 10, 2021. The draft HBS outlines priorities for the long-term management, preservation, and maintenance of historic buildings in the park and will guide park management in making decisions on funding and preservation efforts. This is the third and final civic engagement period on the strategy since the project was launched in 2016.
