Did you see dead fish floating in your pond last spring? One of the most common causes for a fish kill is not polluted water, but a lack of dissolved oxygen. A “winter fish kill” is a common occurrence during long winters where heavy snow covers the ice of a pond. Visit our Pond Information page to learn more!
Monroe County SWCD will be working in conjuntion with Genesee County SWCD, the USAg Recycling, Inc., and the Ag Container Recycling Council to participate in the 2013 Agricultural Plastics Recycling Program. Visit our Agriculture page to learn more about this and our other agricultural programs.
