Iowa DNR Spokesman Says Close To Reaching Environmental Deal

 

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is close to working out an agreement with EPA on regulation of the state’s livestock operations. DNR Spokesman Kevin Baskins says a pact could be finalized this week regarding manure run off and clean water protections.

Baskins says new developments have provided tools to producers that has helped them improve their environmental controls.

He says the state’s cattle producers have done a good job in working with DNR in improving environmental protections of their feedlots.

Baskins says it’s not so much about inspections but about consultations between state and federal regulatory officials and producers in finding viable solutions.
