Good River: Stories of the Ohio is a collaborative reporting project with support from the National Geographic Society. The Ohio River watershed provides drinking water for five million people. So the stories of the Ohio and the people who help and hurt the river are vitally important. Bonnie’s first contribution to this series is about the city of Newport, Kentucky and community members work together to remove concrete and add green space to include more green infrastructure in their neighborhood.
