Customers had questions regarding the fish after treating the reservoir for algae. †Washington County Water Conservancy District answered the following questions;
  • Is it safe to fish and eat the fish they catch? †Yes, live fish should be safe to eat at this point in time.
  • Is it safe to eat the dead fish? †We do not recommend eating fish found floating dead in the lake under†any†circumstances.
  • Is it safe for the birds to be eating the dead fish? †Same for birds as people.

Research has shown that fish kills after the first 24 hours after treatment are generally due to low dissolved oxygen. †The district gathered fish that died up to 24 hours after the treatment, so we assume recent mortality is due to oxygen levels.
