YORK, Pa. (AP) — Pennsylvania environmental officials say milk from a storage tank leaked into a central Pennsylvania creek.

Department of Environmental Protection officials say the milk leaked from a storage tank at Rutter's Dairy in Manchester Township, York County, into a nearby stream on Monday.

Officials aren't sure how much milk made it into the creek. DEP emergency response manager Bob Conrad says the majority of the milk in the tank remained in the plant but enough reached the water to be noticeable.

Workers will visit the dairy on Tuesday to learn more about what caused the leak.
