Note: There is one wild and scenic river, White Clay Creek, in the Affected Environment of all of the Action Alternatives. It is located in New Castle, DE.
Note: All Action Alternatives assume improvements to the existing NEC; therefore, the number of resources presented is inclusive of the existing NEC as well as any new option or off-corridor route associated with each Action Alternative.
* Most of the resources are only partially located in the Affected Environment. The total number of acres represents the total acreage of the parklands, including acreages outside and inside the Affected Environment of the existing NEC or any alternatives.
