September 9, 2009
A mobile-home park just south of Iowa City is facing new state scrutiny
after exceeding pollutant limits from its wastewater-treatment plant. The residents complain of odors and other problems
that are eroding their neighborhood property values and quality of life. As one of the essential but mostly silent mechanisms of modern life, good municipal wastewater treatment
is the kind of thing most people don't notice or appreciate until it's not available.
