DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

According to the Iowa Department of Natural Resources, about 1,300 fish were found dead in a stream in Dubuque County.

DNR says the source was manure runoff from a cattle feedlot near Luxemberg.

The owners of the cattle feedlot, James Schieltz and Joseph Schieltz, cleaned up the manure spill and stopped any further manure flow into the creek.
