In many ways, the Ohio River is an unsung resource. The Ohio’s near-thousand-mile course flows through Pennsylvania and five other states before emptying into the Mississippi. It’s a source of drinking water for millions people. But its long legacy as a “working river” has also made it the most polluted in the country. Those living along its banks are now beginning to realize that reimagining their relationship with the river could prove crucial to the region’s future. This podcast explores what this new chapter in the river’s history could look like — and how we can get there.
