artifact description
In an effort to bring soil erosion under control, the Iowa Legislature in 1971 enacted a new law establishing six soil conserving districts with power given to them to require soil conservation practices to he employed when damages occur because of excessive erosion. The main points of this law and their implications are discussed in this report. The report then discusses research needs in the area of sediment pollution. A brief discussion also is included on a research project to be undertaken in this area of research.
