DES MOINES - Highlights from DNR’s six environmental field offices will kick off the Dec. 17 meeting of the Environmental Protection Commission.
The business meeting begins at 10:30 a.m. in Room 116 of the Iowa State Capitol, 1007 E. Grand Avenue in Des Moines.
A contract to reduce bacteria going into Iowa’s largest coldwater trout stream, the Yellow River, is up for commissioners’ approval.
Commissioners will also be asked to approve the third quarter intended use plans for the Clean Water and Drinking Water State Revolving Funds, which provide low-interest loans to publicly owned drinking water suppliers and wastewater facilities. Funding helps improve drinking water and control pollution of Iowa’s waters.
In other action, commissioners will be asked to approve a final rule change which will change the definition of “common ownership” of animal feeding operations, replacing the word “majority” with “10 percent or more.”
Successes from the Environmental Management System program will conclude the meeting, showcasing innovative solid waste projects.
The meeting is open to the public. There is no scheduled public participation. Written comments may be submitted up to one day before the meeting to Jerah Sheets at Jerah.Sheets@dnr.iowa.gov or to DNR, 502 E. Ninth St., Des Moines, IA 50319.
