Manure caused fish kill in Indiana creek



The Associated Press

EATON, Ind. - A fish kill along three miles of a central Indiana stream has been traced to manure that spilled from a field tile on a nearby hog farm, a state official said Sunday.

State environmental officials cut that field tile Saturday evening, halting the flow of manure - and the damaging ammonia it carries - into Pike Creek in Delaware County.

State officials learned of the kill Saturday after reports began coming in that dead fish were lining the banks of Pike Creek near Eaton, about 60 miles northeast of Indianapolis.
