Iowa Water Center related news and content has been running on a virtual platform since 2014. These articles have touched on an array of water-related topics. These topics include student researchers’ projects, soil health, water quality, flooding, stormwater, mapping data, leadership within Iowa’s water-sector, and so much more.

Our purpose is to inform Iowans of the latest water-related news happening throughout the state. There are so many great things happening within Iowa’s water-sector and the Iowa Water Center uses this platform to dive deep into specific water-related topics.
