Fish kill on SE Georgia river investigated

STATESBORO, Ga. (AP) – State and federal
environmental officials are looking into a fish kill on a 35 to 40
mile stretch of the Ogeechee River in Screven and Bulloch
counties.

Officials say testing conducted over the past three days has not
identified a cause for the kill and the investigation is
ongoing.

They say that until the cause of the kill is determined,
citizens are advised to avoid swimming or consuming fish taken from
the Ogeechee in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham and Screven counties.

The state Environmental Protection Division says it will issue
further guidance as soon as test results become available.
