LEETOWN, W.Va. (AP) - An official says a recent fish kill at the U.S. Geological Survey’s Leetown Science Center will have a minimal impact on research.

Director Bill Palmisano says several hundred trout in a holding tank died last week when a power outage caused a pump system to fail. The system moves fresh stream water into the tank.

Palmisano tells The Journal (http://bit.ly/1M5Fk2b ) that the fish were being held for future research. He says the incident isn’t a significant loss for the center’s research efforts.

The center studies environmental factors that affect the health of fish and other aquatic organisms, including water quality, disease and genetic factors.
