Iowa DNR investigating a manure discharge in Cherokee County

Diluted manure
CLEGHORN—The DNR is investigating a manure discharge from a cattle operation in northern Cherokee County after receiving multiple complaints Friday.

DNR staff confirmed that manure runoff from the Tentinger Feedlot is reaching a tributary of Bear Creek about 4 miles northeast of Cleghorn. DNR staff will work with the owner to stop the discharge.

The investigation is ongoing, but DNR staff think runoff from recently land-applied manure is responsible. They did not see any fish in the stream—either dead or alive.

The DNR will consider appropriate enforcement action.
