Local Leaders

Leaders across Iowa play an important role in the future of flooding and water quality on both the rural and urban landscape. Understanding the issues is a key to making the best decisions as our communities grow and work together. As Iowa continues to be a leader in agricultural production and is home to fast growing urban communities, decision makers must consider future impacts to our resources and make efforts to protect residents into the future.

Local leaders may include:

  • Conservation professionals
  • Elected officials
  • Agricultural group leaders
  • Politicians
  • Community group leaders
  • Engineers
  • Federal, state, and local government staff
