DNR Investigating Manure Spill into Devil Creek in Lincoln County


A manure spill on a farm in Lincoln County has led to a fish kill in Devil Creek.

Wednesday night, the DNR was notified of manure running off a field into Devil Creek southwest of Merrill.

The DNR is now assisting with the investigation.

The source of the spill was an open value on a manure pit at a medium-sized dairy operation.

The DNR still doesn’t know the full scope of the spill.

It’s working with the farm and other agencies to get answers.
