MSD to clean-up dead fish in parts of River Des Peres

(KMOV) – The smell of dead fish lurks in the air near the River Des Peres in south St. Louis due to the hot and dry weather keeping the river waterless for the most part.

The St. Louis City Streets Department told News 4 the city cannot do anything to clear out the dead fish because that part of the River Des Peres is not owned by the city.

News 4 discovered it is the St. Louis Metropolitan Sewer District’s property and MSD will pick up the dead fish that are on nearby banks or easy to reach.

Most of the fish are Asian carp fish and the Missouri Department of Conservation is not worried about the amount of Asian carp fish that have died.
