Des Moines Water Works Lawsuit

"We are pleased with the victory.

We are gratified that the District Court recognized what we have long indicated--that the issue presented is beyond the power of a drainage district to address.

We are very appreciative of the individuals and entities, both local and statewide, that stood with us in defending the interests of our local agricultural economy through this long legal battle."
