New Charles City watershed coordinator to investigate Cedar River and farming practices

Turns out, Iowans are contributing too much nitrate into the Cedar River – making portions of the river unsafe for drinking. New Charles City Watershed Coordinator, Doug Johnson, is here to help.


Johnson believes Charles City’s portion of the watershed of the Cedar River isn’t a trouble zone, but the entirety of the river needs to be investigated and supplemented to see the whole picture.


Johnson says he will be attempting to save farmers money with his direct assistance.


Johnson’s contract will be paid entirely by the Iowa Finance Authority’s rural grant for the extent of a 5 year stay.

The Watershed Project details will be fully revealed to the public at Dugan’s Restaurant in Floyd on March 25th at 10 a.m.
