The Squaw Creek Watershed Authority and what’s being done to monitor water quality in central Iowa was the topic of discussion on this past Wednesday’s Local Talk show. Co-hosts Susan Franzen and Tom Beell talked with Jerry Keys of the Story County Conservation Center and Pat Conrad of the EOR Water Ecology Community about the watershed, which extends north into Webster County and includes much of Boone and Story Counties. (A map of the watershed is to the left) Also on the program, Penny Brown Huber, executive director of Prairie Rivers of Iowa, told how her group is working to make more people aware of the watershed and how they can help take care of it. Wednesday’s program also included a report by reporter Kay Puttock on the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI), which is cosponsoring a Trivia Contest Fundraiser next month with KHOI.
