SPENCER, Iowa (AP) - A Clay County judge has ordered a northwest Iowa hog producer to pay a $15,000 penalty for an illegal manure application last year that led to a fish kill.

The civil penalty was assessed Tuesday against Bruce Click, who owns and operates a 4,000 hog operation in Peterson, for applying the manure last September. Authorities say the manure flowed into a tributary of the Little Sioux River, resulting in water quality standard violations and a fish kill.

In the consent decree filed Tuesday, Click admitted to the violations and agreed to the penalty and a permanent injunction against further violations.
