Abstract

The Nutrient Reduction Strategy Annual Progress Report is compiled by the three lead agencies (Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship, Iowa Department of Natural Resources and Iowa State University) of the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy and presented to the Water Resources Coordinating Council. The report follows the Iowa Nutrient Reduction Strategy (NRS) (nutrientstrategy.iastate.edu) framework that is based on EPA recommendations provided in their March 16, 2011 memo, “Working in Partnership with States to Address Phosphorus and Nitrogen Pollution through Use of a Framework for State Nutrient Reduction.” The annual report provides progress updates on point source and nonpoint source efforts related to the action items listed in the elements of the strategy and updates on implementation activities to achieve reductions in nitrogen and phosphorus loads.
