Brandywine Creek || Christina River || Naamans Creek || Red Clay Creek || Shellpot Creek || White Clay Creek
Naamans Creek is a tributary of the Delaware River in northeast New Castle County, Delaware and extreme southeast Delaware County, Pennsylvania. The creek has two main branches (North and South) each about 6 miles in length; the North Branch drains residential and commercial areas in Pennsylvania west of Marcus Hook, while the South Branch drains a similar area in Delaware. The stream rises near the intersection of Foulk Road and Naamans Creek Road in Bethel Township, Pennsylvania and discharges directly into the Delaware River in Claymont, Delaware. Most of this watershed is non-tidal but there is a tidal dam located on lower Naamans Creek.
The land use of the watershed is primarily urban residential, industrial and commercial.
