5/31/2017 - Notice Regarding Dead Carp at Mill Pond
Please be advised that in the past few weeks, a number of dead carp have been observed in the Mill Pond. When the Borough first learned of this problem, several agencies were contacted to investigate the cause including Suez Water, the Bergen County Health Department, and the NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife. All of these agencies came out to investigate the problem.

Along with observing the condition of the lake, the representative from the NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife took several carp and performed autopsies on them to try to determine the cause of the problem. After performing his analysis, he believes that the carp died due to the fact that they were in their reproductive/spawning stage and we experienced a few days of very hot weather in mid-May that caused a fluctuation in the water temperature. The combination of these two factors caused an undue stress on this species and they died of natural causes. He did not feel that there were toxins in the lake that caused the problem as there are other species of fish in the lake that did not have any problems and are doing fine.

The Park Ridge DPW has now removed the dead fish and will continue to monitor the Mill Pond for any additional dying fish. If any residents have any questions, please feel free to call the Park Ridge Borough Hall at 201-573-1800.
