Q&A: Regional Journalism Collaboration Takes Deep Dive Into The Ohio River Watershed

Dec 2, 2019

The Ohio River is an important ecological and economic force in the region. It provides drinking water for 5 million people, but it’s also one of the most polluted rivers in the U.S. A new regional journalism collaborative is digging into what it means to live in the Ohio River watershed. 

For the next several weeks, the Good River project will be publishing stories about the river’s watershed, which covers 15 states including West Virginia.

WVPB Energy and Environment Reporter Brittany Patterson chatted with the project’s managing editor, Halle Stockton with PublicSource, to find out more.
