Iowa DNR to survey Mariposa Lake
Mariposa one of seven Iowa lakes chosen to be mapped
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources announced Monday a statewide project aimed at improving the recreation areas anchored by seven Iowa lakes — one of which is located within Jasper County.
Mariposa Lake was included on the list of seven lakes that will be the focus of mapping surveys intended to give local conservation programs a better snapshot of the lakes’ landscape while also producing high-quality maps of the underwater terrain.
“This is going to be a little more in depth,” Jasper County Conservation Board Director Keri Van Zante said. “Mariposa is on a list impaired waters in line to get funding — I requested the lake to be on the list of impaired water eight to 10 years ago. This survey will tell anglers what they already know, and confirm to DNR and legislators that something does need to be done.”
