MADISON, Wis. – The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources staff is assisting with cleanup efforts of a manure spill near Pulaski in Oconto County that entered the Little Suamico River.

Late last week and over the weekend, surface-applied manure from Betley Farms near Pulaski, ran off the intended application site and into the Little Suamico River.

The spill started at State Hwy 55 (also called County C) and has since moved northeast of Pulaski towards the bay of Green Bay.

DNR staff has been on-site since Sunday and is assisting with cleanup efforts being led by the farm. The discharge has been stopped at the application site; however, cleanup efforts are still ongoing.

No further details are available at this time. The DNR will share additional information as it becomes available.
