Fillmore County Manure Spill

A 2,000,000 gallon manure lagoon gave way sometime this past Sunday on a farm outside of Canton, MN and a portion of the manure drained into nearby “Donaldson” Creek, otherwise an unnamed feeder creek which flows into Wisel Creek. Amount of manure estimated to have flown into the feeder has been estimated between 350,000 to 1,000,000 gallons. It is unknown or unspoken at this time if there has been any fish killed – water was already high and turbid and it’s difficult to see effects at this time.
