1,000 dead fish found in Central Indiana Creek

On Tuesday May 27Th The State Department of Environmental Protection was alerted to a fish kill in Big Yellow Creek in Central Indiana. Approximately 1,000 fish were killed mysteriously. The DEP didn't find anything in the water and believes whatever killed the fish has moved on. The DEP alerted the Central Indiana Water Authority who subsequently shut off their water intake and tested the water. They have since opened the intake because they were unable to find anything harmful in the water. The dead fish ranged from trout, carp, suckers, minnows, and small mouth bass.
