5312270-3x2-940x627Investigations are underway into the cause of a large fish kill at a central Queensland waterway. More than 1,500 fish have washed up dead at Hood’s Lagoon in Clermont since yesterday morning. Isaac council acting chief executive Scott Riley says the issue is not related to water quality problems at Dysart. He says council workers have observed fish gasping for air. “I think the issue we are dealing with in Clermont is more of a routine maintenance type of issue that’s linked to the normal maintenance of the town’s supply system, whereas in Dysart, it’s been a water quality issue in terms of the defined supply via the pipeline,” he said.
