Partnerships help the Iowa Watershed Approach succeed

No one organization in Iowa can implement the entire IWA program alone. The IWA’s success depends on collaboration among many partners statewide who helped to create the program and the many more working to develop and implement its many components.

Partnerships help the Iowa Watershed Approach succeed!
