GIS Seminar

Identifying Potential Locations for Water Quality Wetland Installation Using GIS Modeling

Annina Rupe, GIS/RS analyst, Ducks Unlimited, Inc.

Abstract

Iowa’s water quality has suffered due in part to the intense agriculture performed across the state. Wetlands naturally filter water, which helps remove excess nutrients, but a majority of Iowa’s historic wetlands have been drained.

Ducks Unlimited (DU) and the Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship (IDALS) have partnered to identify where wetlands, specifically those aimed at improving water quality, would be best placed and to work with landowners to install these wetlands. This presentation delves into how GIS is used to simplify and speed up this process for the benefit of Iowans.
