Fish Kill Near Wicklow Reservoir Under Investigation

Reports today say hundreds of fish including Trout, Salmon and many smaller species have been found dead in the river Liffey, upstream from a Wicklow reservoir supplying drinking water to Dublin.

According to Independent.ie, the discovery was made last Friday at a popular angling spot about two kilometres from the Poulaphouca Lake reservoir. The report says Inland Fisheries Ireland and Wicklow County Council are carrying out investigations to try to identify the cause and establish when it occurred. Irish Water said its own tests had come up clear and there had been no impact on water quality.
