Confinement Consequences (Joe Bolkcom, Iowa State Senator (D))
What does water quality have to do with politics? Find out from Senator Bolkcom.
There have been a whole spate of reports over the last year in Iowa regarding the poor water quality in our rivers and streams, record high nitrates, antibiotics in our water. We've had half the beaches at state lakes close this past summer. We've had a whole series of fish kills throughout the state. Iowans want the issue of water quality and the negative impact of animal confinements on water quality to be addressed.
