It’s our responsibility to protect and maintain Mother Earth!  Winneshiek County Sanitarian, Doug Groux does many water tests for rural residents and issues well and septic permits.  Radon test kits are sold at Public Health.  Winneshiek County is known for the amount recycling we do.  Helping Services for Youth and Families sponsors a Drug Take Back program each year to help ensure that medications stay out of landfills and don’t contaminate our water systems.  We have several miles of bike trails and public transit is available to anyone through Northeast Iowa Community Action Corporation and the taxi service.  Winneshiek County residents are fortunate to have many services that help to protect our air, water and food.
