An environmental organization believes a maintenance procedure at a concrete plant and quarry resulted in a fish kill including wild brown trout on a section of Bushkill Creek, but the Pennsylvania Fish & Boat Commission said it has not found any evidence. 
Maya van Rossum, CEO of the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, said a significant fish kill occurred on Bushkill Creek on May 17 and 18 during planned maintenance operations to install and test new backup generators at the Buzzi Unicem quarry.
