CARROLL, IOWA — Prior to an emergency landing, a crop duster released several gallons of insecticide near a private residence southwest of Swan Lake State Park.

The pilot estimated he released about 10 gallons of Lorsban and six gallons of Capture about an eighth mile from the park, near 220th Street and Mahogany Avenue.

The public was advised to avoid this area while DNR investigates the incident and monitors the cleanup, as there are potential health risks to anyone who has direct contact with quantities of these chemicals.

The plane is reportedly registered to Central Ag, LLC, of Corsica, S.D.

DNR will continue to oversee cleanup and may take appropriate enforcement action. The Federal Aviation Administration and Iowa Department of Agriculture and Land Stewardship will also be investigating.
