The year around study of Iowa's rivers would provide a priceless body of data. The physical and chemical data, the biological data are needed so that the state may evaluate the progress of quality control in the crucial years ahead. The state has hundreds of men capable of doing such studies in local areas (high school, Jr. college, and college instructors in science). A massive approach could yield state-wide data quickly and enable many scientists to be useful scientifically and socially. This could involve many students of all ages who are eager to work and learn.
