Second Massive Fish Kill on Pecatonica River

By  | 

The Department of Natural Resources says thousands of fish died when a farmer released 35,000 gallons of liquid manure near the river in the Iowa County Town of Mifflin.

The fish kill was reported to the DNR last week.

Another manure spill in July killed thousands of fish along a 30-mile stretch of the river in Lafayette County.

The DNR continues to investigate both incidents.
