By Horace Palacio: The Guinea Grass Village Council has issued a warning to residents regarding the current condition of the New River after several dead fish were discovered and the water appeared polluted. Due to these alarming findings, the council is strongly advising against fishing or bathing in the river, particularly in the area surrounding the New River Park.

While the exact cause of the pollution and fish deaths is still under investigation, the council is taking immediate precautionary measures to protect the health and safety of residents. The advisory emphasizes the importance of avoiding contact with the river water until further notice.

Residents are encouraged to seek alternative locations for recreational activities and to report any further observations of dead fish or unusual water conditions. The council is actively monitoring the situation and working with relevant authorities to determine the source of the pollution and implement necessary remediation efforts.

The council urges everyone to cooperate with these precautionary measures and to stay informed about updates regarding the New River’s condition. The safety and well-being of the community remain the top priority.
