We know we'll be telling some compelling stories," says Lora Friest, Executive Director of Northeast Iowa RC&D.

Lora Friest, executive director of Northeast Iowa RC&D in Postville, said the WMA builds on work by the Turkey River Watershed Alliance, an informal collaborative of private and public organizations including four SWCDs, four counties, Iowa DNR and NRCS that has worked together in the watershed for nearly three years.
"It's much more difficult to get state and federal funding for private conservation if you don't have water monitoring data, and so this group came together long before the authority to work together to make it happen," Friest said. "This group will only do things that are voluntary based," Friest said. "They don't want to force anyone to do anything. They would like to provide the opportunity and have the funding come in to SWCDs and communities so that communities and landowners across the watershed can implement voluntary conservation practices." Friest said that participants feel that what they're doing can be a model for the nation. The Iowa Economic Development Authority in November selected the Turkey River Watershed as one of three to develop a flood reduction plan that could be used as a model for other watersheds. TRWMA representatives from participating governmental bodies are exploring opportunities and partnerships and discussing how to engage watershed residents in the development of a watershed flood reduction plan that local residents will embrace, Friest said. They are working closely with local SWCDs and the Turkey River Watershed Alliance, as well as local producers, producer groups, landowners and community members. Four public meetings held across the watershed this spring were well attended, and more are planned, Friest said. RC&D staff and TRWMA executive committee members also met with county Farm Bureau boards and producer group representatives including the Iowa Corn Growers. "Attendees have many questions but have been very receptive," Friest said. "They seem to recognize that if everyone does something, together we can make a difference reducing flooding and improving water quality." After a meeting in Cresco, four farmers stopped at the Howard County SWCD office to find out how they could help, Friest said.

The project's goal is to create state-of-the-art hydrological modeling of the water flowing through the Turkey River Watershed, said Lora Friest, executive director of Northeast Iowa RC&D in Postville.
"As Larry Weber with the Iowa Flood Center explains, the goal is to slow the water down and take the peak off the hydrograph so that the impact of heavy rainfall is not so severe," Friest said. "We have watched homes, valuable farmland, roads, bridges and even entire communities wash downstream in the Turkey River Watershed," Friest said. "We can work together as a watershed team to address flooding before more devastation occurs rather than react to flooding after it causes millions of dollars in damage."
