The state Health Department has fined North Dakota State University $5,000 for a manure spill last July.

The department's director of water quality, Dennis Fewless, said up to $4,000 can be dismissed if the university meets certain conditions to prevent future spills.

The Forum reported that 110,000 gallons of cow manure and liquid were accidentally discharged when a pump malfunctioned at a dairy barn.

NDSU was able to recover all but 2,000 to 2,500 gallons of waste, which eventually ended up in the Red River.
