Investigation Underscores Need for Water Quality Funding
Just as Iowa families farm the land, Louisiana family shrimpers harvest the bounty of the water. Both must balance a wide range of shifting economic and environmental factors.

The two professions are connected in a very direct way — through the Mississippi River. Growing evidence suggests the shrimpers’ fate is closely tied to farming practices in places like Iowa, more than 1,000 miles upstream.

Research shows the hazardous impacts of fertilizer runoff are not isolated to the Gulf of Mexico. Over-concentrated nutrients also endanger our recreation areas, as with the 1,400 closures or swim warnings issued this summer at public beaches in the 12 states under review. Most troubling of all, those nutrients end up in our drinking water, potentially threatening our health and driving up municipal governments’ water treatment costs, which are covered by our tax dollars.
