About 20 years ago the White River experienced a toxic discharge from an auto plant that wiped out over 4 million fish. Since then, the river has been on a long journey of restoration.
Today on All IN we talk about what impact the White River has on the community around it – from recreation to economic investments, even our drinking water. Two reporters from the IndyStar join us to talk about their recent series about the river. And experts and advocates explain which bacteria and contaminants remain in the river, and we discuss efforts to minimize pollution and harmful runoff.
