6-3-14 manure spill update

For the first time since an estimated 50,000 gallons of manure spilled from a large Fond du Lac County dairy farm into a nearby creek there is some good news.  Fond du Lac County Public Health Officer Kim Mueller says test results from county wells at Camp Shaganappi and Columbia Park have come back negative for any contamination.  Mueller says the DNR felt it was very unlikely that the manure would contaminate
private wells in the area.  Mueller says heavy rain over the last couple of days may actually help flush the contaminated surface water into Lake Winnebago.  Meanwhile Mueller says signs warning people to stay out of the water remain posted at Camp Shaganappi and Columbia Park.
