Filter Sock Found Near Manning

Posted: Updated:

They look like long butterfly nets, but Dunn County officials are warning the public to stay away from oil filter socks.

Last weekend a filter sock was found outside of Manning, found in a road ditch, and while the sock wasn't radioactive officials say the socks can still be dangerous. And as the weather gets warmer groups or more likely to come in contact with socks while cleaning up roadways.

"People band together and do ditch cleanups that's where we found this one right outside of Highway 22. We just want to bring to everyone's attention if you come across something that you're unsure of what it is, or you may think it might be one of these to please don't touch it. Contact the sheriff's department or my office so that we can take a look," says Denise Brew the emergency manager of Dunn County.

Oil companies of the county have agreed to help dispose of socks found along roads because the companies are already equipped to dispose of them legally. It's illegal to dispose of radioactive socks in the state.
