Paullina, IA (KICD) — A manure spill has likely caused the death of thousands of fish.
DNR Spokesman Ken Hessenius shared details on the incident announced Monday…

On Saturday, a citizen reported seeing dead fish in Mill Creek. The DNR responded and dug a trench that redirected the manure to a field. On Sunday, DNR staffers noted many dead fish, including suckers, minnows, darters, shiners, a few catfish and a few small largemouth bass.

Hessenius says there is not much that can be done about the clean up of it…

The manure discharge from Summit Dairy to an unnamed tributary and Mill Creek has resulted in a fish kill that today stretched 12 miles from its source to the edge of Cherokee County. The DNR suggests that livestock and pets should be kept away from the impacted waters.
