A history of landscape change in Iowa and its impacts on freshwater lakes, rivers and streams. We’ll look at the effects of degraded water quality for fish and aquatic wildlife species, as well as for human consumption and recreation. We’ll also explore possible solutions to Iowa’s water quality problem, discuss potential roadblocks, and a vision for the future of waterways in our state.
