Death of 5,000 fish in Weems Creek blamed on low oxygen levels

via The Capital

Actually, I'm not sure if the number is 5,000 or 15,000. The paper says 5,000, but the website article says 15,000. According to Robert Ballinger, spokesman for Maryland Dept. of the Environment, oxygen reading in Weems Creek yesterday were 0.54 parts per million. The minimum dissolved oxygen level for perch and rockfish is 5.0 ppm.
