Officials: No More Fish Kills in Hewletts Creek

JULY 6, 2005 -- The state agency monitoring water quality in Hewletts Creek says the fish kills are over, but swimmers and fishermen are still being urged to stay away.

The State Environmental Agency says testing has determined levels of dangerous bacteria have dropped since the three million gallon spill of raw sewage on Friday.

Scientists also say no more fish should die in the dirty water, and they credit the hot, sunny weather and tidal flows for that.

Water testing will continue daily until bacteria levels are back to normal. Swimmers and fishermen are reminded to stay away from the creek and nearby waters.
