Iowa DNR Investigates Manure Spills From Feedlots In Northwest Iowa

Iowa DNR Investigates Manure Spills From Feedlots In Northwest Iowa

Monday, Iowa Department of Natural Resources Officials along with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services investigated a pair of manure spills in Lyon County. Monday’s spill was the most serious as that one caused some fish kill. DNR Environmental Services Specialist Cindy Martens says that occurred from a cow calf operation into the Little Rock River east of Doon.

Martens says the other spill occurred last week Friday in a tributary of the Rock River near Inwood. She says they wrapped that investigation up Monday and that was cleaned up with no real environmental damage. Martens says the cause of that spill was misapplication of manure by a livestock producer.

Martens says it’s important that any spills be reported to DNR as soon as possible. The greater the delay between the event and the reporting the less likely it is that the source of the pollution can be traced.
