Fish found dead in reservoir

Malout, June 13

After getting the report of fishes dying at the reservoir of the waterworks at Tharajwala village, a team of the district administration, led by Tehsildar, on Wednesday visited the village and took water samples from there.

The team during its preliminary investigation found that the fishes died as the water-level was lying low in the reservoir. “The rising temperature is primarily the reason behind the death of fishes as the water level is very low in the reservoir. The water seems normal and not contaminated, still it is asked to resume the supply by fetching water from other source,” said a spokesperson for the district administration.

Notably, a few days ago, when contaminated water was released in the canals, it had created panic among residents and taking preventive measures the supply to the waterworks was stopped. — TNS
