Lorde, shall we swim in the Potomac River?

When an international superstar says she went swimming in the Potomac River, D.C. takes notice. The singer Lorde recently told fans that she took a dip in the nation’s river to get a feel for the city. WTOP’s Neal Augenstein, who has been covering water issues in our area and is a musician himself, tells us why it got such a gushing reaction. We also hear from Riverkeeper Dean Naujoks who argues everyone should be able to legally swim in the Potomac.
