A week to recognize better care of Iowa's air, soil and water

Posted:

Iowa's soil and water conservation week is just around the corner.

It's purpose is to recognize that the abundance of our agricultural products and the quality of life we enjoy are dependent upon the proper use and management of soil and water resources.

One way the department of agriculture is reaching its goals is through the capture of storm-water runoff.

Governor Terry Branstad will issue a proclamation recognizing Nov. 27th through Dec. 3rd as this year's Soil and Water Conservation Week.
