SPARS User Mailing Lists

The SPARS User Mailing List was developed so that SPARS users can be

  1. Quickly and timely notified about SPARS emergencies and updates.
  2. Informed about SPARS-related events.
  3. Involved in the DNR's ongoing process of making SPARS more accessible and user friendly.

It is our belief that regular communication with SPARS users can reduce the number of helpdesk inquiries we receive on a daily basis. In turn, we expect an increase in the efficiency and expediency of our response to the needs of our SPARS customers.

There are two mailing lists available to you, one for Title V sources and the other for Minor sources. You may join one or both of these lists.

To join the Title V Source mailing list, send a blank e-mail message to:

To join the Minor Source mailing list, send a blank e-mail message to:

If you have any questions regarding the SPARS User Mailing Lists, please contact Kevin Connolly at 515-725-9569 or at
