A 350-cow dairy near Gilroy, Calif., is under investigation for allegedly spilling a large amount of waste water into Alamias Creek.

According to an article in The Gilroy Dispatch, the waste water traveled more than 4 miles through Alamias Creek and stopped just short of the Llagas Creek headwaters. Llagas Creek is a migratory channel for steelhead trout.

The Santa Clara County district attorney and the California Department of Fish and Game are investigating. The producer says the spill was accidental.
