Fish Kill Probe

(Michigan City, IN) - Officials are trying to determine why so many fish died in a body of water in Michigan City.


According to Mayor Duane Parry's office, dead carp were discovered in Striebel Pond, located on 1100 West south of Earl Road, just after noon yesterday. Officials say the fish was far from the shoreline. 


Early test results indicate the oxygen level in the water was a bit low and, combined with low water levels and stress from the recent hot, dry weather, officials said. "Striebel Pond is a flood control facility that includes family and dog-friendly outdoor recreational space and a 1.5-mile trail for public use," as stated by the city's parks website.
