Take Action: Tell DNR to strengthen AFO rules in Iowa

Added 9.21.23

DNR has released another round of proposed rules for animal feeding operations (AFOs) and a draft regulatory analysis for public comment. While some proposed changes are positive, the proposed rules still do not do enough to protect groundwater and drinking water sources from pollution. We must again call on DNR to strengthen the proposed rules to protect Iowa’s waters, public health, and wildlife. 

Learn more about the proposed changes and submit your own comments to DNR by 5:00 pm on Tuesday, September 26.
