Public Comment Needed (Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy)

Postby feathhd » Tue Jan 08, 2013 9:39 pm

Good afternoon,

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources and the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship has extended the public comment period for the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy by two weeks until Friday, Jan. 18, 2013. The original 45-day comment period was scheduled to close on Jan. 4. We urge you to submit your comments on behalf of cleaner rivers and streams – we can all benefit from improved water quality.

As written this “Strategy” does not adequately address the huge impact agricultural practices contribute in contaminating Iowa’s rivers and the rest of the Mississippi watershed’s water supply and falls short of protecting Iowa’s waters. This “Strategy” requires revisions that include new, measured and accountable approaches to reducing agricultural chemicals in our waterways.
