May 20, 2016, Lenox, IA – Cleanup is underway at a Taylor County farm in Iowa following reports of an overflowing manure pit.
Farm officials are working with a contractor to empty the manure basin and clean up spilled manure on the site. The farm is a small hog finishing farm about three miles southwest of Lenox.
While investigating, Iowa Department of Natural Resources field staff saw a path where manure flowed into an unnamed tributary of the East Fork of the One Hundred and Two River. However, DNR staff has not observed any dead fish.
The DNR will be on site as it continues to investigate the incident.
