Iowa Colony movin' on up

Iowa Colony, the tiny farm-oriented burg in the middle of Brazoria County, is gonna be gettin' flush toilets, which should greatly upgrade its reputation in the land where Texas began. It wasn't that long ago that Iowa Colony was nothing but a speed trap on Texas 288. That got cleaned up about 9 years ago. Now, word comes from Austin that Iowa Colony Sterling Lakes, Ltd. has filed a petition for creation of Brazoria County Municipal Utility District No. 31 with the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality. First, speed traps, now the outhouses. A way of life, gone forever.
