(State) The state Environmental Protection Commission got a visit today from dozens of members of Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement. Spokesman Evan Burger says they want to hold the commission accountable as it writes rules for factory farms under the Clean Water Act.
"As the DNR and the EPC consider rule making moving forward to permit factory farms in Iowa. We want to hold their feet to the fire so these permits are as strong as possible."
There were 76 manure spills at farms in the state last year.
