Creek pollution source possibly isolated

EPD officials have ordered a local industry to halt a discharge in connection with a polluted creek that has been an issue here for nearly two weeks now. More information is expected later today. Kevin Chambers of EPD reported at noon Thursday a facility with a discharge runoff problem has been isolated and that the runoff must be addressed. Contrary to rumors, the firm has not been shut down. The investigation is ongoing. There is no concrete evidence yet that the runoff led to the fish kill in the creek and downstream. UPDATE: EPD will have nothing more on the matter until Tuesday. Monday is a state holiday.
