WESTMINSTER, Colo. — About 400 fish were found dead at Westminster’s City Park Pond, according to city officials.
Park staff discovered about 200 dead fish while performing maintenance duties Thursday morning. Another 200 were discovered Friday.
Westminster officials said the cause of the die-off is currently unknown. However, the company that manages the pond took samples and will conduct testing to try to determine the cause.
Approximately 20 percent of the pond’s fish population died.
The pond has been stocked for the last two years with grass carp, channel catfish, bluegill and largemouth bass.
