Out to the Lakes

Winner of three Iowa Motion Picture Association awards, "Out to the Lakes" is a provocative and engaging film that encourages viewers to think about water quality and their personal relationship with their local lake or water body. The film addresses water quality through the perspective of lakes and the water bodies that feed them. The film features Iowans, not actors, who care deeply about where they live and their local water quality. It also features environmental experts from the Department of Natural Resources, Iowa State University and the University of Iowa. The film offers insight to what Iowans know, or don't know, about water and water quality.
