2,500 fish die when manure spills into Iowa creek

Nov. 3, 2011 | 0 comments

State environmental officials estimate about 2,500 fish were killed when manure spilled into a creek in northeast Iowa.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says 2,000 to 5,000 gallons of manure leaked Tuesday morning (Oct. 25) from a farm in rural New Vienna. It's unclear how much made it into Bear Creek but the spill contaminated about nine-tenths of a mile of the creek. About 2,500 fish in nine species were killed.

Officials say farmer Dan Goedken accidentally left the valve of a transfer pump open, causing the spill. When Goedken discovered the mistake, he shut off the valve, built a retention dike to minimize the flow to the creek and contacted the agency.
