ENVIRONMENTAL WORKING STUDY SHOWS IOWA CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE WITH NITRATES IN ITS DRINKING WATER
POLITICO reports:

Nitrate became more prevalent in Iowa drinking water between 2009 and 2016 because approaches that would have helped limit the flow were not applied consistently and only were done in limited areas.

That's according to a study being released today by the Environmental Working Group.

The programs that are being introduced to fix the issue only help about 2 percent of the land there. "A little over 2 percent isn't going to give you any substantial change in the nitrates in the surface water," said Soren Rundquist, director of spatial analysis for EWG who worked on the study.
