    KEOSAUQUA, Iowa - Owners of a southeast Iowa hog farm that spilled thousands of gallons of hog manure into a dry creek have agreed to pay a fine and make improvements to prevent future spills.

    The spill happened in November, sending thousands of gallons of manure into a dry creek near Keosauqua.

    The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says the Illinois-based owners will pay a 10-thousand dollar fine.

    The farm also will repair manure collection equipment and make other changes an engineer recommended.
