DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Water quality experts from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources say they will answer questions from Iowans on Facebook on Tuesday afternoon.

The DNR staff will answer questions about anything from drinking water to recreation live from noon to 2:30 p.m. to Iowans posting questions as a comment on the "Live Q&A" post that the DNR will send out at noon. Participants also may post questions ahead of time on the DNR's Facebook Timeline at www.facebook.com/iowadnr .

Staff members answering questions include Bill Ehm, head of the DNR's Environmental Services Division; Shelli Grapp, Water Quality bureau chief; and John Olson, senior environmental specialist.

Participants need to "like" the DNR Facebook page and be sure they're getting notifications and the posts are showing up in their news feed.
