Iowa Project AWARE, the annual canoe-based volunteer river cleanup, will convene in northwest Iowa this year. The cleanup has been set for July 10-15 on the West Fork of the Des Moines River in Emmet and Palo Alto Counties. A group from IAWEA and the Iowa Section of the American Water Works Association is being organized by Taylor Hopper (contact information below).


The AWWA/IAWEA group will participate in two to three days on the river. IAWEA and AWWA members and friends are welcome to participate for all or part of the group outing or even stay longer if desired. Sign up early for the lowest cost; the pre-sale discount expires April 15. Additional discounts are available for young professional and student members of IAWEA and Iowa Section AWWA.
