The drought is causing a fish kill and massive algae growth in Reno’s Virginia Lake. 2 News reports that the toxins in the river are dangerous to both people and pets. The poor water quality was the subject of a Tuesday night meeting. Officials are hoping to create a water circulation project for the lake this fall. They’re also considering construction of floating wetlands or artificial waterfalls to help improve water quality. Future studies and more public meetings will happen before anything is decided.
