A mysterious brown foam was found floating on the surface of Lake Mead in Las Vegas, and researchers are saying it could be the cause of dozens of strange fish deaths.
Park officials were asking the general public to stay clear of the water for the time being just to be safe. Southern Nevada Water Authority has been brought in to monitor the pollution levels of the lake, and so far they claim nothing is out of the ordinary.
Volunteers have collected samples of the water for testing and though nothing has yet to be found, the SNWA has said they will be gathering their own samples in order to conduct a more precise investigation into the strange brown foam.
The Washington Post reports that both the water and sludge was tested this Tuesday, with the results expected sometime in the near future. Until then, maybe it’s a better idea to hit the public pool.
