Delaware

Located in the northeastern portion of the Delmarva Peninsula of the United States, Delaware is divided into three counties and is on a level plain, with the lowest mean elevation of any state in the nation with its highest elevation not rising fully 450 feet above sea level. An 80 foot ridge extends along the western boundary of the state separating watersheds that feed Delaware River and Bay.
