NDOW: No Toxins in Sparks Marina, Oxygen Levels Rising

Posted: Updated:

After losing the entire fish population in the Sparks Marina, tests show the water there has no toxins and the oxygen level is rising again.

In December, a sudden drop in the oxygen level killed an estimated 100,000 trout, catfish and bass - the lake's entire fish population.

The Nevada Department of Wildlife says new tests found nothing unusual beyond the lack of dissolved oxygen. The say unusually cold temperatures caused the levels to drop.

NDOW says they are optimistic the marina can be restocked in the coming month.
