DNR Investigating Carroll County Manure Spill
Iowa Ag Connection - 12/07/2017
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources received a report from manure applicator Neese Inc. late Tuesday of a manure tanker tipped over near a ditch near Willey in Carroll County.
DNR staff investigated the incident late Tuesday night and Wednesday morning. Upon investigation, it was observed that manure spilled on the road. Some manure reached the Willey Branch. Berms were quickly constructed to stop the flow in the ditch and
equipment was used to clean up the remaining manure on the road. The amount of manure spilled is unknown. Water samples were collected and submitted for analysis.
The manure was being hauled from the Matt Gehling confinement and land applied by Neese, Inc.
The investigation is ongoing and further enforcement may be considered.
