Project Description: This project involves acquisition of data from a wide variety of governmental entities (federal to municipal) regarding expenditures made during the period of 2014-2021 for protection and restoration of water resources in the Delaware River Basin. It builds on a completed project that focused on the period of 2014-2019, by adding new expenditure categories and previously undiscovered data for that period, and then extending the database for the years 2020 and 2021.
Position Responsibilities: Working with a project principal investigator, the graduate students will contact governmental entities that may have made relevant expenditures during the target period, verify the existence of available data, acquire data, and assist with the processing of data for input to the project database.
