Project AWARE

Project AWARE, the annual canoe-based river cleanup organized by the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, will convene in southeast Iowa this year. The cleanup has been set for July 11-15 on the Des Moines River. A group from the Iowa Water Environment Association and the Iowa Section of the American Water Works Association is being organized by Taylor Hopper.

Group participation is planned for July 11-12, with canoeing starting in Eldon, Iowa, and continuing downstream from there. You are welcome to participate for all or part of the group outing or even stay longer if you want. For more information visit or contact Taylor at 515.233.0000 or
