Guide to Permits
 
This brochure was made possible through the Upper Delaware Council's Techinal Assistant Grant.

UDC Design Handbook (Reference Guide to RMP):
 
The Design Handbook, was originally printed in 1990 and was recently updated in 2014. The handbook is based on a set of federal guidelines, the Upper Delaware Land and Water Use Guidelines (often referred to as only Guidelines), that apply within the river corridor. It explains these technical guidelines using plain English and lots of illustrations. But the Land and Water Use Guidelines remain the definitive source and we recommend that you refer to pages 114-134 of the Final River Management Plan.
(Note that contact information in the Handbook may be outdated.)
