Pattison Sand & Mining in Clayton, Iowa, has applied and been denied three times by the Department of Natural Resources for a permit to drill for water from the Jordan aquifer, a source of drinking water for 500,000 Iowans. It intends to sell this water to western states.


Now it is trying to circumvent this decision through an administrative judge and Governor Reynolds. Please contact Governor Reynolds and tell her that Iowa water should be reserved for Iowans.
