As a result of a recent railway accident, more than one hundred fish have been removed from Flat Creek near Gainesville, Georgia, due to the presence of soybeans.
The release of soybeans in a creek in Georgia in July resulted in the death of a significant number of fish in the creek, which is about 0.9 of a mile away.
More than one hundred fish have been found dead in Flat Creek, a tributary of Lake Lanier located in Hall County, according to a representative for the Georgia Environmental Protection Division who talked with Fox News Digital on Monday, August 22nd.
A local news channel in Atlanta was the first to expose the fatalities last week; they have now been tied to the presence of soybeans in the water system. Last week’s deaths have now been connected to the fatalities.
Becca Risser, a headwaters watershed specialist with Chattahoochee Riverkeeper, a nonprofit organization that monitors water quality, stated that soybeans and discolored water were the first signs of trouble in an interview with The News God. Chattahoochee Riverkeeper monitors the quality of the water in the Chattahoochee River.
