"The Alabama Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and Alabama Department of Environmental Management are investigating a fish kill on the Mulberry Fork of the Black Warrior River, in the immediate vicinity of the Gorgas Generating Plant, a coal-fired power plant operated by Alabama Power.

Alabama Power spokesman Michael Sznajderman confirmed Saturday that ADCNR and ADEM were looking into the incident and that the company was supporting their investigation.

'It did take place near Plant Gorgas but it is unclear at the moment what the cause was or if it has a connection to our operations,' Sznajderman said in an email."
