CLEAR LAKE, Iowa - Many were all ears to hear how they can keep their local drinking and recreational water clean.
Jennifer Terry with the Iowa Environmental Council wanted to share her passion for clean water with people at Clear Lake Chamber of Commerce meeting. She talked about how locally, a lot of work has been done in connection to Clear Lake's watershed, but she says more can be done anywhere, if you speak up.
“You can keep your waterways clean by speaking up at public meetings. When you go to a public forum make sure you stand up, be bold, and ask what you public official plans to do for clean water,” Terry said.
Terry says she'd like to see a better balance with farmers and residents when it comes to clean water saying 92 percent of nitrogen found in our waterways comes from farmland and that needs to change.
