 HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) - A Timberville dairy producer has paid a $6,825 fine for allowing manure to spill into the North Fork of the Shenandoah River.
 
Windcrest Holsteins stores manure for land application.
 
The Virginia Department of Environmental Quality cited the farm after owner David Yutzy informed an agency official about the spill during an annual inspection.
 
 Agency enforcement specialist Karen Hensley said that the output valve on a container wasn't opened. Instead of being rerouted to a different container, at least 24,000 gallons of excess waste spilled into the waterway.
 
 Hensley says Yutzy told the department he will meet an Aug. 1 deadline to correct the problem.
