A pair of fuel spills will cost a New Hampshire company $6,000.

The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources says the Evans Group, Inc., of Lebanon, New Hampshire, leaked fuel at a gas station in Fairlee and one in Sharon over a six-month period last year without reporting the spills in a timely manner.

The agency says the company, which cleaned up both sites, has had similar violations in the past. The Evans Group has agreed to settle the most recent charges.

As part of a settlement approved last week in state Environmental Court, the company has agreed to better educate its employees about spills and how to respond to them.
