New telephone numbers for staff at the Iowa DNR Air Quality Bureau begin Sept. 16. The Iowa Communication Network (ICN) is upgrading the Air Quality Bureau’s phones over the weekend of Sept. 14-15 due to 911 reporting requirements.
The main Air Quality Bureau phone number will be 515-725-9500. The main fax number will be 515-725-9501. A complete listing of new numbers is on our website at www.iowadnr.gov/InsideDNR/DNRStaffOffices/AirQualityStaff.aspx.
The Air Quality Construction Permit Hotline, 877-247-4692, will not be impacted by the upgrade. The phone upgrade will also affect voicemail. Voicemails left on Friday, Sept. 13, and over the weekend at the 281/242 prefix numbers will not be forwarded to the new 725 prefix numbers. Please use email during the transition time to get messages to Air Quality staff.
We appreciate your patience during our transition.
