Environmentalists Seek More Inspectors

It was  Environmental Lobby Day at the statehouse.   The Iowa Environmental Council is  pushing for more  inspectors to make sure Iowa’s large animal confinement facilities are following clean water rules.    At the same time the  Iowa Department of Natural Resources is locked in a battle with the federal environmental protection agency over how much inspection is enough.
