DNR confirms manure spill in Brown County

By Central Office December 14, 2018

Contact(s): Jim Dick, DNR spokesperson, 608-267-2773

GREEN BAY - Department of Natural Resources staff and the owner of New Horizon Dairy, De Pere, are working to contain a manure runoff event near Wrightstown off Fair Road west of State 57.

The dairy's owner is working to control and contain manure contaminated water from running off the field. The runoff has entered an unnamed stream along the east and south sides of the field and into a ditch on the north side of the field. The farmer notified the DNR of the spill and is working with the agency to implement control measures.

DNR staff is still determining the downstream impact of the spill. An estimate of the volume of runoff is not yet available, but it is estimated about 60,000 gallons of manure-contaminated water has been collected by vacuum trucks.

DNR will continue to work with the dairy owner to contain the spill. Additional information will be provided as the situation develops.
