Some limitations may apply for young children and pregnant women. The Iowa Watershed Approach (IWA) is a vision for Iowa’s future that voluntarily engages stakeholders throughout the watershed to achieve common goals, while moving toward a more resilient state.

It is a replicable model for other communities where the landscape has lost its natural resilience to floods. Fourmile Creek and its tributaries run for over 40 miles before draining into the Des Moines River. Along its path, the creek has a long history of extreme flooding, erosion, and poor water quality.

To address these diverse issues, local communities created one of the first watershed management authorities (WMA) in the state in The Milwaukee River is over miles long with a watershed that approaches square miles. Its tributaries spread throughout Fond Du Lac, Sheboygan, Washington, and Ozaukee Counties, collecting runoff from hundreds of farms and towns as it flows south before emptying into Lake Michigan.

Iowa Water Quality Initiative The Water Quality Initiative was established during the legislative session to help implement the Nutrient Reduction Strategy (NRS).

The NRS provides a road map to achieve a 45% reduction in nitrogen and phosphorus losses to our waters. Threemile Creek is located in Idaho County, Idaho. The water quality in Threemile Creek is influenced by both point and nonpoint sources of pollution.

In the Idaho Water Quality Standards (IDAPA ), Threemile Creek is protected for cold water aquatic life, salmonid spawning, and secondary contact recreation designated beneficial uses.

The Deer Creek Watershed Management Plan reflects management measures that when implemented are intended to improve the water quality within the watershed. Monitoring programs are designed to track the progress in meeting load reduction goals and attaining water quality standards.

One of the challenges in water quality monitoring is to be able to demonstrate a link between the implementation.watershed providing source water to Des Moines Water Works’, pollutant loads impact drinking water for overcentral Iowa customers.
