State officials: Fish kill may have many causes

September 19, 2010 at 10:51 AM

BELLFLOWER, Ill. (AP) - State officials now say they are looking at multiple possible causes in a central Illinois fish kill that left about 40,000 fish and other aquatic animals dead.

The Illinois Environmental Protection Agency earlier this week said runoff from a large dairy farm near Lone Tree Creek was suspected to be the cause of the fish kill.

On Wednesday, though, IEPA’s Bruce Yurdin told The Pantagraph newspaper in Bloomington that there are a number of potential sources.

The fish kill happened over 9 miles of the creek and a mile of the Sangamon River below the point where the creek joins the river. The spot is in McLean County.

The state Department of Natural Resources says largemouth and smallmouth bass, sunfish, carp, mussels, frogs and crayfish died.

And the lawyers said…........ “You can’t just look at one party or person even if the evidence is overwhelming. It is important to be able to testify that you considered all suspects, and investigated them all completely and equally. Your primary focus of your investigation cannot be the only investigation even if you know the guilty (alleged) as the defense counsel will question if you considered and eliminated other suspects or leads”

And the Public Relations people said…....... “We need to do another press release that says we are looking at other sources, and the spokesperson that did the original press release has to go sit in the corner for 30 minutes”
