DES MOINES—Contracts and a tour of Easter Lake watershed improvement project are the highlights of the Aug. 20 Environmental Protection Commission meeting in Des Moines.
The business meeting begins at 10 a.m. in Room 116 of the Iowa State Capitol, 1007 E. Grand Avenue. From 1 to 2:30 p.m., commissioners will meet at the Historic Bridge to tour improvements at Easter Lake on the southeast side of Des Moines. The tour is open to the public with access through the south entrance.
