Tools

By Rachel Begle

AMES, Iowa (AP) - The Midwest regional administrator for the Environmental Protection Agency will discuss Iowa water quality issues at Iowa State University on March 5.

Karl Brooks, who oversees EPA operations in Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, will talk about water pollution that comes from no specific source but from runoff after rainfall or snowmelt. It's known as nonpoint source pollution and it can carry fertilizer, chemicals and other manmade and natural contaminants into lakes and streams.

Brooks will discuss collaborative efforts of the EPA, Iowa farmers, state agencies and Iowa State University to address water quality concerns related to agriculture.

Brooks is scheduled to speak at 7 p.m. March 5 in the Memorial Union Great Hall at ISU.
