Kilbuck Creek being polluted?
Online Staff Report
The Rock River Times was tipped off to an alleged pollution issue in Kilbuck Creek. Upon research and sending a guest photographer, Steve Larsen, out to the scene, we have some images to share with you.
Upon further research via Google Earth, we found satellite imagery dated 2011 that shows a milky white substance entering the creek from the Winnebago Landfill, more commonly known as Pagel Pit (see Google Earth image below).
The Environmental Protection Agency has been notified, and TRRT will continue to investigate. More news as it arrives. Read next week’s (Wednesday, Oct. 2) print edition to see pictures and for more details.
