Rivers and streams in Iowa will now directly benefit from fines paid by their polluters. Fines paid to the state for spills that killed fish and polluted the water had gone to a fund not earmarked for any specific body of water. Iowa Department of Natural Resources Fisheries Bureau Chief Marion Conover says the D-N-R is changing that policy.The money will now go to local soil and conservation districts in the county where a spill hits. Conover says this policy will ensure the waterway is improved.The D-N-R is putting 110-thousand dollars into the restitution fund to get it rolling.
