In addition, Iowa generally follows the federal groundwater standards that are applied for groundwater monitoring at final permitted and interim status hazardous waste treatment, storage and disposal facilities.
• Administration and enforcement. DNR's Water Supply Operations Section administers the water use and allocation permitting and water well construction permitting regulations. DNR's Underground Storage Tanks section enforces UST sampling requirements and the certification requirements for groundwater professionals.
