Manure Spill Causes Problem on Highway 20 West of Earlville

You may have been one of a number of drivers who came across a pile of manure on Highway 20 on Friday afternoon.

The Delaware County Sheriff’s Office says there was a substantial manure spill that covered both eastbound lanes just west of Earlville.

The DOT requested the roadway be washed to clean off the manure that a skidloader was unable to remove.

That stretch of Highway 20 was closed down for a short time as fire departments from Earlville, Delaware, Delhi and Manchester assisted by washing off the mess.

No word on what led to the manure spill.
