MASON CITY, Iowa- Democratic candidate for Governor Cathy Glasson made a stop to the First Congregational Church in Mason City where she made her opinions on the water quality issue very clear.

Glasson stated that she is in support of a full moratorium on confined animal feeding operations, more specifically on corporate farms. She says she not lift moratorium until the number of contaminated waterways in Iowa gets below 100.

“We need to make sure that we have stronger penalties and stricter fines when we have corp. ag. violating the rules,” says Glasson. “There's not a mandatory compliance to make sure that the farmers and corporate ag are following regulations to keep the waterways clean.”
New data released by the Iowa DNR earlier this year listed the number of contaminated waterways at over 700. They also stated that not all contaminations are bad as well as explaining that it is difficult for the waterway to be removed from the list once it is considered contaminated.
