The City of Dyersville was recognized during the 2021 virtual Iowa Water Conference in April for the completion of the Bear Creek Stream Restoration, Green Infrastructure Project. This project is part of the Community’s Field of Dreams Watershed Plan. The award was accepted by Mick Michel, Dyersville City Administrator, and Judy Joyce and Reid Stamer of Impact7G.
The community’s Field of Dreams Watershed Vision Plan’s motto is “if you clean the water, they will come”! The multiple funding sources for water quality practices, brownfield redevelopment, and stream restoration, provide the framework for addressing local water quality concerns and improve public river access.
The community is commended on their effort to protect and improve local water quality.
