CLINTONVILLE, Wisc. (WFRV) Wastewater from a dairy farm near Clintonville has discharged into a local creek.

The farm is located along Reinke Road.

The Department of Natural Resources says it's investigating the incident. They aren't sure how much wastewater was released or how long the release occurred. Officials say the wastewater flowed into Honey Creek, a tributary that discharges to the Pigeon River.

Although the discharge has stopped, it's still impacting Honey Creek.

The DNR and local officials are notifying residents in the area.

The farm, which does have a DNR wastewater discharge permit, is taking action to collect released wastewater.
