To my fellow Iowa Sportsmen be it from fishing to waterfowling or simply enjoying the great outdoors. Please make sure you send in your comments about what you would like to see done to improve your favorite River system to Enhance Your Recreational Opportunities. As a duck hunter I certainly expect every Duck hunter who reads this to send in their comments / ideas as to improve their River area. Make dam sure you state the river name, the area. It is time We make a difference folks in shaping our future and said Opportunities.

Iowa Rivers Revival was successful last legislative session in encouraging the Iowa Legislature to convene an Iowa Rivers and Waterways Study Committee.
https://www.legis.iowa.gov/Schedules/co ... 85&CID=926
The committee will meet on Tuesday, December 10 at the Iowa Statehouse to address the need for Iowa to establish a statewide River Restoration Program, develop recommendations for an initial plan that sets criteria and prioritizes river and waterway projects, and provides defined goals and measurable improvements.

ACTION: Organizations and individuals that champion efforts to improve Iowa’s water quality and the conditions of our rivers and streams are needed to help inform and influence this process.
Submit written comments to the interim committee by Tuesday, December 10th.

You can also review comments that have already been submitted and view IRR's comments to the Study Committee. https://www.legis.iowa.gov/APPS/Feedbac ... aspx?qid=3
Attend the committee meeting at the statehouse on December 10th at 10 a.m. in Room 103 to show your support. This meeting is open to the public and we strongly encourage you to attend to show Iowa legislatures strong support for establishing a statewide River Restoration Meeting. Please e-mail rlehman@iowarivers.org if you can attend.
Contact your legislators in support of establishing a River Restoration Program. https://www.legis.iowa.gov/Legislators/find.aspx
Encourage organizations and individuals who you know are committed to improving water quality and the condition of Iowa’s river and waterways to submit comments and attend the meeting on the 10th.

Thank you. I suggest that you submit your input via the legislative website: www.legis.iowa.gov. Middle column, half way down. That way it becomes “official.”
