Water Summary Update is a quick view of four ways to explain the status of Iowa’s water resources and observes events affecting water supplies. It will be published every two weeks or as conditions significantly change. It is prepared by the Iowa DNR in collaboration with the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, the U.S. Geological Survey, and The Iowa Homeland Security and Emergency Management Division.
For archived Water Summary Reports, please visit the State Library of Iowa's website and search for "Water Summary Update."
Iowa's Drought Plan (IDP) was developed through a collaborative planning process between state, local, and federal partners. With input and feedback provided by stakeholders throughout 2022, a core team of representatives from the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR), the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS), and the Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (HSEMD) drafted the following pages with the full support of senior leadership from each respective state entity. During 2023 these agencies will be implementing and testing the Iowa Drought Plan. The entire plan can be accessed by using the link below.
