GREAT BEND, Kansas – City crews announced that there was a major fish-kill at Veterans Lake near Garden City on Thursday.
Crews have been working to clean the lake to the best of their abilities.
The fish-kill is suspected to be a result of a blue-green algae bloom.
The use of the lake has been restricted by the KDHE, and Garden City has hired a consultant to identify, address, and remediate any problems.
Veterans Lake has been under a blue-green algae warning for over a year.
