Impact of Savannah Dredging Plan

NPR's Adam Hochberg reports from Savannah, Georgia, on a plan to dredge the Savannah River Harbor to accommodate larger cargo vessels. Supporters of the $230-million project say the benefits of a deeper harbor would offset the cost. Critics are concerned about the environmental effects of dredging the river, including the potential harm to fisheries and migratory birds.
