Under the Iowa Stream Pollution Law, adopted in 1923, the State Department of Health is charged with the administration of antipollution measures. The law requires specifically that the State Department shall investigate conditions of alleged pollution and may issue orders for the remedying of such pollution. If the work contemplated under any such order exceeds $5,000 in cost, the State Executive Council must approve such order.
