DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - Iowa officials are discussing water quality in the state.

The state Department of Natural Resources will present a report Tuesday to the Iowa Environmental Protection Commission on a draft list of more than 480 impaired waters around the state. A new rule that clarifies enforcement options also will be discussed.

The DNR says the most typical impairments for lakes are algae and turbid or cloudy water. For rivers, it's a high level of bacteria that detects contaminated water.

A new rule that clarifies how the DNR responds to a potential violation also is on the agenda.

The biennial report will be available for public comment until the end of February. A revised draft will then be sent to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for final approval.
