Heritage Park Pond Fish Deaths Currently Under Investigation

Please be advised that the Canton Parks Office is now investigating an influx of dozens of dead fish that were recently discovered in Heritage Park ponds.  

Unusually high numbers of rainbow trout, bluegill, and other varieties of fish have recently died off and Canton Parks is working with the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) to investigate.  The cause of the deaths has not yet been determined.  

To date, no chemicals were used in the treatment of these ponds and so have been ruled out as a possible cause of such an occurrence. Staff will continue to monitor the situation and work with state agencies to explore possible causations, as well as to determine possible speedy solutions.
