New Video Focuses on Iowa Watershed Approach

The Iowa Flood Center was instrumental in bringing a new $96.9M grant from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to Iowa for a statewide watershed improvement program, the Iowa Watersheds Approach (IWA). The IWA will address issues associated with the devastating and dangerous floods Iowa communities experience year after year. Iowans have already tried, tested, and approved the concepts of the IWA. The Iowa Watersheds Project (IWP) is entering its final year, and landowners and community members are noticing the benefits.
