IowaWatch assistant editor and data analyst Lauren Mills and Iowa City Press-Citizen reporter Stephen Gruber-Miller were guests on the Tuesday, Aug. 18, 2015, “Your Town” segment of Jay Capron’s morning show on KXIC radio, AM 800, in Iowa City.

They talked about a collaboration in which Mills wrote about the growing intensity of algae in Iowa’s lakes and Gruber-Miller, an IowaWatch reporter before joining the Press-Citizen, wrote about the condition of lakes in the Iowa City area.
