According to Clear Horizons, a ruptured pipe from the Dane Community Digester resulted in the spilling of 300,000 gallons of manure.

A release from Clear Horizons states that employees discovered a ruptured pipe on Sunday, Nov. 24 and the leak was stopped immediately. Clear Horizons employees installed barrier berms to help confine the spill to the site and facilitate the cleanup. Subcontractors were also brought in to assist with the cleanup.

The DNR and the Dane County Land and Water Resource Department are supporting the cleanup and determining where to spread the recovered manure.

The cleanup was expected to be complete by last Thursday.

The cause of the spill is under investigation.
