The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency Thursday asked the Illinois Attorney General's office to proceed with an enforcement action against Haycock Soil Service, Inc, for the discharge of ag chemicals into Prairie Creek, causing a fish kill. Haycock operates an ag chemical facility in Delavan. Authorities say a truck pulling a Haycock ag spreader hit a guard rail, tipped over and landed in the creek, spilling its contents. The state EPA has requested that Haycock be directed to take steps to remove all agricultural chemical contaminants and undertake any measures necessary to prevent them from reaching the Mackinaw River.
