Delaware Public Media

From the Source: Stories of the Delaware River

From the Source: Stories of the Delaware River is a year-long collaborative reporting project covering Delaware River and the watershed feeding it from multiple angles —  water quality, environmental challenges, climate change, recreation, history, and how it all converges to define our region and inform life here. Through words, images, videos, and interactive graphics, we will take readers from the Catskills to the Water Gap; through muddy, secret fishing holes and urban centers, to where the river melds with the bay. From the Source: Stories of the Delaware River, is produced with support from the National Geographic Society, the Lenfest Institute for Journalism, and the William Penn Foundation. Editorial content is created independently of the project’s donors.

One low-lying Wilmington neighborhood is expected to be highly susceptible to rising sea levels down the road.  But before tackling that challenge, a solution to the chronic flooding it already faces is being built.

Delaware Public Media’s Sophia Schmidt explores that project, and what else might need to be done to keep the neighborhood livable long term.
