VIDEO: We asked: How would you describe the connection among water quality, outdoor recreation and economic development


Water is going to have a lot to do with Greater Des Moines’ ability to live up to projections for a population of 1 million, and to attract and keep enough workers to fully staff growing businesses. Outdoor recreation, much of it centered on lakes and rivers, is a big reason many people live in this area. We asked this morning’s panel of experts in agriculture, environmental issues, government, business, development and recreation how we capitalize on a key moment in Greater Des Moines’ history and a chance to build on considerable momentum in the area.

Ingrid Gronstal Anderson – water program director, Iowa Environmental Council
Tom Hadden – city manager, West Des Moines
Kathryn Kunert – vice president/economic connections and integration, MidAmerican Energy Co., Central Iowa Water Trails Incubator board
Sean McMahon – executive director, Iowa Agriculture Water Alliance
Ted Corrigan  Interim CEO and general manager, Des Moines Water Works
