SPARKS, Nev. (Mynews4.com & KRNV) -- There are more questions than answers as to what led to as many as 100,000 fish dying at the Sparks Marina.
Community Relations Manager Adam Mayberry says they are getting to the bottom of it, and conducting their own tests to figure out what led to low oxygen levels. Mayberry says at least two million gallons of water from the Marina is pumped into the Truckee River, and that the water at the Marina is always being refreshed.
As far as safety for outdoor enthusiasts and pets at the Marina, Mayberry says there isn't any reason to worry. "It's very important to know that there is no health or safety issue here at the Marina. We have an outdoor dog park, one of the more popular dog parks in the region. People can continue to use the dog park and allow their pets to enter the water."
