About one year, the Nature Conservancy and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers partnered up to restore biodiversity to the Green River by controlling the water flow differently. On Wednesday, the Corps brought in one of its top officials, Lieutenant General Robert Flowers, to monitor the project's progress.

Flowers told Hometown Television that he thinks the project is a success, and he hopes to replicate it in other parts of the United States. This is the first time the Nature

Conservancy and the Corps of Engineers have done something like this. Officials expect the project to last for about three years.
