DES MOINES, Iowa — The Iowa Department of Agriculture has announced three watershed demonstration projects that will receive water quality initiative funding.
The state will spend $1.4 million on three projects statewide.
One of those includes Squaw Creek in Story, Boone, and Hamilton counties. Matching funds will bring the Squaw Creek Watershed Project to nearly $1 million.
The idea is to develop a plan and work with farmers and other stakeholders to try to improve water quality in the area.
