MADISON, Wis. - The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources staff, along with Kewaunee County Land and Water Conservation District, continue to monitor the cleanup effort at the site of a manure spill into a ditch in the town of Pierce near Algoma.

The farm, Ebert Enterprises, has stopped the discharge and is continuing to work to identify the source of the issue. They are pumping manure from a storage pit and moving it to another temporary location. Once the pit contents are reduced, they can excavate around the pit to investigate the cause of the discharge.

The DNR will share additional information as it becomes available.
