LAUREL, Iowa (AP) — Iowa regulators are investigating a hog manure spill in Jasper County, south of Laurel.

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources says a farmer had called on Wednesday after spotting dead fish and crawdads in a tributary of Alloway Creek.

Environmental specialists tracked the manure spill to a 4,000-head hog facility owned by Clinton Vos, of Newton. It was determined that manure was leaking from a wall of the hog confinement and pooling outside the building.

The department says the owner has repaired the building and erected a berm to contain the manure.
