On this edition of The Kentucky Side with Michael Monks – LINK nky’s podcast – we explore the health of the Ohio River, our misconceptions about it, and whether it’s safe to swim in.
Joining us to talk about the health of the river is Ohio River Foundation Executive Director Rich Cogen. To explore growing recreational opportunities on the river, we hear from Ohio River Way Chairman Brewster Rhoads.
To talk about the historic use of the river, like the old beaches in Bellevue and Dayton, where tons of folks would flock for a dip in the water, Kenton County Public Library Executive Director Dave Schroeder is here.
And we also take a look at a smaller body of local water: the Banklick Creek. Banklick Creek Watershed Coordinator Nicole Clements.
The Kentucky Side is produced by Cam Miller.
