NEWTON (WLUK) -- A manure runoff from a Manitowoc County dairy farm is affecting water quality in the area.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says it responded to a complaint Monday about a potential spill in Pine Creek in the Town of Newton.

The creek flows into Lake Michigan.

It is unknown how much runoff entered the stream and impacts it will have downriver.

The dairy farm is working with the DNR to address the issue.

Officials say they are monitoring the situation.
