State D.N.R. investigating fish kill in the Boone River.
Posted: Oct 10 2013 by ppowers

 The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is investigating the report of a fish kill in the Boone River in Hamilton County. The staff from the D.N.R. are looking for a contaminant that killed fish and aquatic organisms along a stretch of the Boone River southwest of Woolstock. A caller reported the fish kill Monday afternoon to the D.N.R. but had seen the dead fish on Friday. At least one mile of the river was affected. The D.N.R.  will continue to look for the source of pollution in this fish kill. The staff did not detect ammonia at the site, making it less likely that manure was the cause of the fish kill.Anyone with information on this fish kill should call the Mason City DNR field office at 641-424-4073.
