On Aug. 13, Porkmag.com reported on a fish kill in the “thumb” region of Michigan that some blamed on manure runoff. At the time, the source was unclear.

Since that time, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality has announced that Noll Dairy Farm, Inc., near Croswell, Mich., was the source of the contamination.

“We observed the runoff coming from (Noll Dairy),” DEQ spokesman Robert McCann was quoted as saying by The Detroit News. “So now we’re trying to figure out what the circumstances were that led to that runoff. It flowed into a creek near the farm that led to the river,” he said.

The number of fish killed could be as high as 200,000.
