DNR Responds to Overturned Combine Near Exira
Iowa Ag Connection - 12/02/2019
Last week, DNR field office staff responded to a report of an overturned combine in a creek northeast of Exira.
It appears the combine released approximately 30-50 gallons of diesel fuel and an unknown amount of hydraulic fluid into an unnamed tributary, which flows northwest into David's Creek. An environmental contractor is handling clean-up efforts in the unnamed
tributary and no sheen or fish kill was observed in David's Creek.
Officials believe the combine overturned sometime late Monday night. The combine is owned and was operated by Chambers Farms.
