Work Plan Agreement, Materials, and Reports

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 7 current work together to implement the federally authorized National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Program within Iowa in a timely, appropriate and effective manner.  We establish priorities, negotiate program commitments and work sharing, and evaluate program performance.
