In this Herald photo from last month, Ogeechee Riverkeeper director Dianna Wedincamp takes water samples on the Ogeechee River near U.S. 301. Legislators and state officials will meet tonight with the public about the fish kill.
A $5,000 reward is being offered for information proving responsibility for the massive fish kill that left thousands of dead and rotting on the banks of the Ogeechee River last month. Ogeechee Riverkeeper Dianna Wedincamp announced the reward Sunday during a citizen’s meeting at Dasher’s Landing in Blitchton. A second meeting is planned tonight at 7 p.m. at Effingham County Middle School, where local legislators plan to question officials from the Environmental Protection Division.
