With 71,665 miles of streams and rivers and more than 161,000 acres of lakes, ponds and wetlands, Iowa may seem rich in water resources, but how much of it is protected from pollution and available for Iowans to use for drinking water, recreation and industry? The next "The Iowa Journal" will look at the quantity and quality of Iowa's water resources. Guests will be Richard Leopold, Director, Iowa Department of Natural Resources and L.D. McMullen, former CEO of Des Moines Water Works. He is now the Water Resources Project Leader for the consulting firm of Snyder & Associates in Ankeny. (27:46)
