The Iowa Department of Natural Resources (DNR) reports an unknown amount of manure has made its way into a Cass County creek. According to DNR officials, their staff was contacted by a producer, who informed them manure had overflowed at a pit in the Dennis Kuehl hog operation, located about seven miles northwest of Atlantic. Officials who were on-site Friday say the waste had traveled through a tile line and into an unnamed tributary of Camp Creek. The DNR did not locate any fish in the stream and were unable to determine if a fish kill had occurred. The producer is relocating animals to prevent additional overflows and intends to land apply manure from the pit. The DNR says it will continue to monitor cleanup and consider enforcement actions if deemed appropriate.
