Fish Alert City Of Water System Poisoning

Ethyl Acetate Dumped In Monocacy River

Associated Press (nbc4.com)
May 21, 2004

FREDERICK, Md. -- A water-monitoring system that Army scientists
installed at Fort Detrick after the Sept. 11 attacks proved its worth
this week, officials say.

Someone apparently dumped a chemical solvent into the Monocacy River,
killing the eight captive fish at the heart of the system. Their deaths
triggered an alert that prompted the city of Frederick to shut down its
water treatment plant Tuesday for 48 hours.

The chemical, ethyl acetate, was not found in the treated water that
people drink, officials said Thursday.
