How much water does Iowa really have?
February 12, 2008
Iowa's state geologists
have been enlisted to conduct a comprehensive survey of the state's water resources
. Such an inventory hasn't been done for twenty years, and the complete project will take a decade, but the need for such research has increased in part due to the explosive growth in the ethanol
industry, which uses large volumes of fresh water. Meanwhile, the state legislature is looking at a proposal to spend $13.5 million a year
to assess the state's water pollution problems, in part to help identify which types of pollution are coming from what sources.
