Scott Heldt on Improving Iowa’s Water Quality

As I travel across the State and District 20, one of the top concerns on people’s minds is our water quality. The nitrate levels in our water have become toxic for humans and we can no longer keep forcing the people of Iowa to pick up the bill. We have to take responsible action and find a sustainable solution that produces results, while also working with farmer’s and business owners to make sure we’re not inhibiting progress in these areas. 

Plenty of beautiful rivers, ponds, and lakes help make Iowa the great state where we want to live. By cleaning up our water, we are providing families, sportsmen and tourists with the ability to enjoy recreation activities without worry. Taking corrective action now means that we can preserve our environment and continue our proud legacy of working with the land.
