The IDNR is seeking public comment on a newly released list of impaired waters in Iowa. Public comments will be accepted from November 14 through December 28, 2019. The primary recommendation is to remove 27 impairments from the 2018 list once EPA gives final approval. The report also identifies surface waters that do not adhere to applicable water quality standards and those that need a water quality improvement plan. The assessment summary is available for review and comments can be emailed to Dan Kendall at daniel.kendall@dnr.gov.

If you have further questions, please contact Trinity's Burlington office at (319) 576-7900 or Des Moines office at (515) 225-4303.
