Educating Rhonda: Water Quality

“This is going to be a huge problem and no one wants to talk about it.” — Dr. Chris Jones, University of Iowa Hydroscience Engineer. Tonight, at my Educating Rhonda event in Grimes, we DID talk about it. Thanks to Dr. Jones for sharing his important research about Iowa’s nitrate and water quality problems — and a few of the things we need to do now to mitigate the damage for future generations of Iowans. You can read more from him here: And props to Cookies by Design – Urbandale for the perfect treats.
