The IUB has completed the 13 additional public informational meetings that were requested by Navigator Heartland Greenway LLC (Navigator) to discuss Navigator’s proposal to build and operate a large-scale pipeline system that will capture and transport liquefied carbon dioxide from local facilities and span approximately 1,300 miles across five Midwest states, including Iowa. Navigator requested the meetings in a letter filed on June 15, 2022, and also filed a new proposed pipeline route overview map and county maps in Docket No. HLP-2021-0003.

IUB Reminds Iowans to Call 811 to Locate Underground Utilities Before Digging

More than 40 percent of American homeowners who plan to landscape a yard, plant a tree, or install a fence or mailbox this year likely will not make a required 811 call to have their underground utilities located before digging begins. The IUB reminds Iowans  to always call 811 or go to IowaOneCall.com before digging; it's the law! Contacting Iowa One Call notifies operators with underground utility facilities of the intent to dig. Utility companies will respond within two business days by marking underground utilities with color-coded paint marks or flags that tell an excavator where utility lines are located. Learn more by reviewing the IUB and Attorney General's Office Iowa One Call Damage Prevention video.
