DEXTER, Iowa – The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is hoping to get some new ideas on how to better water quality at a central Iowa lake.
The 34-acre Beaver Lake, just north of Dexter in Dallas County, is on the state’s list of impaired waterways. According to the DNR, the lake has a high level of algae which is being caused by too much phosphorus.
The problems are impacting recreation on the lake according to the DNR.
A public meeting is taking place tonight to discuss the issue. It runs from 6 – 7:30 p.m. at Raccoon Valley Bank on Main Street in Adel.
