DES MOINES – DNR staff work with individuals, businesses and communities to help them protect our natural resources by complying with state and federal laws. This approach is very effective. In the few cases where compliance cannot be achieved, the DNR issues enforcement actions. The following list summarizes recent enforcement actions. Find the entire, original orders on DNR’s website at www.iowadnr.gov/InsideDNR/AboutDNR/EnforcementActions.aspx.
Responsible parties have 30 days to appeal the order or 60 days to pay the penalty.
