INWOOD — Environmental officials are monitoring a northwest Iowa stream after cattle manure flowed into it last week.
The manure flowed into a tributary of the Rock River near Inwood after it was improperly applied to a cornfield.
The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is investigating the situation.
The manure came from a 4,000-head cattle facility. After it was applied to the field, the manure flowed into a creek and a neighbor’s pond.
