Draft Wording Similar To Farm Bureau Publications

The draft of a state report detailing how agencies should regulate pollution from farms and sewage treatment plants includes passages apparently taken from Iowa Farm Bureau Federation publications.

At least two passages in the draft report appeared to be largely lifted from farm bureau publications.

Those passages dealt with a preference for voluntary approaches to prevent runoff pollution and the amount of pollution found in wells.

Some Iowa Department of Natural Resources staffers have objected to parts of the report about agricultural runoff.
