Letter to the Editor: Hats off to water quality conscious farmers

To the Editor:
Iowa farmers continue to use good conservation practices which help keep the nitrates and other chemicals out of our precious waterways. Many Iowa farmers have taken advantage of the cost-share funds that were made available by the Iowa Department of Agriculture. These new science-based practices, some of which some will begin this fall, will help Iowa farmers continue to improve our water quality.
Visit cleanwateriowa.org to learn more about voluntary science-based practices that can be implemented on farms and in cities to improve water quality for all of us to enjoy.
Hats off to our water quality conscious farmers. Hopefully we can keep the EPA from being given the right to control all of the waterways across the United States of America.
