Lee welcomed Des Moines Public Works Director Bill Stowe to the show, an expert on storm water management.
Bill commented on water quality, run off, policy, individual responsibility, row-crop farming, recycling, environmental stewardship, and lawn care. He made observations on public works, infrastructure, engineering, and construction education.
He also commented on his personal background and philosophy, plus public works issues in other cities in Iowa and cities in other states like Phoenix, Minneapolis, Chicago, Madison, Portland, San Antonio, and New Orleans.
Lee took a look at the Public Works website while Bill explained the information and interactive features available. Bill explained the new Municipal Park proposed for the southeast side of downtown Des Moines that would consolidate several related municipal services.
Bill also spoke on illegal dumping as an environmental hazard, the need to update sewer systems, and dam failure and flooding in Lake Delhi. Bill also explained snow-plowing priorities and how residents can help by parking off the street during snow events.
Plus, he explained job opportunities and work ethic at the Public Works Department and three things Des Moines residents should remember.
What great information!
Thank you so much, Bill!
