Post-flood tests for toxic wastes to continue through end of year
August 28, 2008
The Iowa DNR will be testing the state's waters
through the end of the year to look for any signs that June's floods caused lasting damage to the environment. Heavy damage to several of Iowa's largest municipal wastewater treatment plants
was likely the most serious effect of the flooding -- which should serve as a reminder to the public of just how important investment in our water infrastructure is, no matter how little attention the subject normally gets.
