About Us

Twin Lakes Environmental Services, LLC, has been assisting producers with manure management plans for over 7 years. Our staff is knowledgeable in state and federal regulations. We have built solid, trusting, working relationships with DNR offices and field staff across the State of Iowa. We will work as a liaison for your livestock operation when it comes to working with the state and federal agencies.

Twin Lakes Environmental Services, LLC, specializes in writing Manure Management Plans (MMP) and Comprehensive Nutrient Management Plans (CNMP) to ensure environmentally sound agriculture practices and manure application in compliance with all state and federal regulations.

Our staff will work with you one on one to assure that your plan works for your site and that you understand it. Our goal is to help producers create plans based on nitrogen and/or phosphorus in compliance with regulations that will work to the best benefit of their farming operation.

Becky Sexton

Becky Sexton started Twin Lakes Environmental Services, LLC in July 2004. Becky works one on one with producers to assure that there is understanding of the paperwork being created. It is our belief that the regulations, as complex as they are, have made this much more difficult than this needs to be. We want to make this process much simpler for the producers we work with and strive to bring our paperwork back to the point of understanding on the part of the producers. We work closely with our clients to assure we understand what they wish to accomplish so that their paperwork can make this happen as well.
