River Restoration Update

The Iowa Rivers and Waterways Study Committee https://www.legis.iowa.gov/committees/c ... upID=19055 will reconvene on Thursday, January 16 from 1-3:30 p.m. in room 103 at the State Capitol to discuss possible next steps for establishing a state River Restoration Program. We encourage you to attend to show support if you are available.

Iowa Rivers Revival has presented budget and program http://iowarivers.org/wp-content/upload ... 1.9.14.pdf recommendations for the committee to consider at this meeting. We have asked that the DNR is appropriated $300,000 to develop a River Restoration Program that establishes statewide criteria and regional targeting, and identifies meaningful and effective river restoration priorities.

Additionally, we have asked for $700,000 to provide cost-share opportunities to initiate and complete several demonstration projects across the state. These projects could serve as examples of options and outcomes addressing a range of river restoration practices.

We urge you to contact YOUR Legislators https://www.legis.iowa.gov/legislators/find . Ask them to support the work of the Iowa Rivers and Waterways Legislative Study Committee and to create a statewide River Restoration Program.
