IAMU leads the way in Iowa in offering an award winning stormwater program.  The Iowa Stormwater Education Program (ISWEP) was developed in 2005 to support cities (MS4) and other entities in Iowa that are impacted by stormwater regulations.  This program creates educational resources to assist MS-4 cities and other education organizations in implementing educational efforts locally to protect and improve the quality of Iowa’s streams, rivers and lakes.  An extensive training program is also offered by ISWEP and includes an annual conference, workshops,and  webinars on numerous stormwater topics that impact Cities and other entities in Iowa. Networking opportunities and technical assistance are provided as well.  Rainscaping Iowa is a program overseen by ISWEP through numerous statewide partners that promotes the use of green infrastructure practices for stormwater management.  Following is a list of ISWEP activities:
