State investigates Roanoke

manure spill, fish kill

Aug. 22, 2013 | 0 comments

State officials are investigating a manure discharge that polluted a creek and killed tens of thousands of fish in central Illinois.

The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency says the spill occurred when a 7,200-head hog farm near Roanoke was spraying manure onto standing corn.

An equipment malfunction caused manure to flow into a drainage pipe and eventually into Panther Creek.

Officials estimate 30,000 fish were killed along a four-mile stretch of the waterway. Emergency management officials dammed the creek and crews worked to pump out contaminated water late last week.

The IEPA has cited Meadow Lane Farms for violations and asked the Illinois attorney general's office to pursue legal action.

Farm owner Mark Schmidgall tells the (Peoria) Journal Star that he regrets the spill and is working to clean it up.
