The Iowa Department of Natural Resources received several reports on Tuesday, January 7, of a spill in Crow Creek on the north side of Davenport that was causing a red sheen.

The red sheen was determined by the DNR and the City of Davenport to be dye from a nearby property owner. The dye is reportedly non-toxic and is not expected to cause any harm.

The DNR continues to investigate the incident and will determine if any other actions are warranted.
