Southern Iowa Development and Conservation Authority (SIDCA) was authorized by the Iowa Legislature in 1999 for the installation of on and off road structures and related projects that provide both transportation infrastructure and water resource benefits. The Authority is comprised of 10 counties across southern Iowa. The Iowa Legislature appropriated $2.6 million to SIDCA between 2002 and 2011 to fulfill this vision.
Since 2002 over 90 structures have been constructed in southern Iowa providing watershed protection and reduced runoff. Over $2.85 million has been leveraged in local and federal funds against SIDCA’s state appropriation.
Pathfinders RC&D provides administrative services for SIDCA.
