Water quality research has been a top priority for the directors of the Northwest Iowa Experimental Association. This type of work involves collecting water samples from tile drainage systems or surface runoff. Tile drainage research requires several acres of uniformly permeable soil. Surface runoff research needs several acres with uniform slope. The adjoining 120 acres recently purchased by the association meets the needs for both types of this research.
