A week of special reports and follow up articles examines one of the region's most important and abundant resources: Water. The project is a first-of-its-kind collaboration between members of the news team at 91.7 WVXU and the WCPO reporting team. Stories examine potential growth for the region's water technology industry, new collaborations among local universities and some of the region's promising companies and start-ups. Stories published each day on WCPO.com and WVXU.com and aired each day on 91.7 WVXU.
