The council, which is established in State Law (29 Del. C. § 8011), provides guidance and policy advice to the Governor and to the Secretaries of DNREC, DHSS, and the Department of Finance. It helps develop funding options for capital and maintenance programs related to drainage, stormwater management and flood control throughout Delaware. And the Council provides assistance in the development and evaluation of criteria for watershed-based plans for surface water management.

Council Meetings

Meetings of the council are generally held on Wednesdays, from 9 a.m. to noon. Notices of council meetings and meetings of its subcommittees are posted on the DNREC Calendar of Events and on the state Public Meeting Calendar.
