NOTE: EXPLANATION OF NOTE BOXES - Shaded boxes with a double line border are note boxes. They contain information that explains how the Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is currently interpreting a rule or give the reader helpful hints on a particular subject. The explanations in the note boxes are not contained in the current rules but will help the reader understand a rule.

NOTE: EXPLANATION OF EXAMPLE BOXES - Dotted line boxes that are not shaded give examples of the rules in action. They include calculations or the application of a DNR rule.
