DNR Continues to Investigate Fish Kill in Sioux County
The Iowa DNR continues to investigate a fish kill in the West Branch of the Floyd River, about two and one-half miles south of Sioux Center. Elevated levels of ammonia are in the water, but the source of the contaminant is still under investigation.
So far hundreds of dead fish have been counted as far as five miles downstream and the DNR is still counting.
A resident reported the stream was very murky and fish looked stressed when he saw them this weekend.
