All of the deaths have been reported since the middle of July in Lake Orion.
“It’s not an issue with the lake. We have the water checked constantly with the heath department,” said Lake Orion Village Manager Joe Young.
Sara Thomas with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) Fisheries Division said the dead carp is a result of a virus. However, Thomas said the virus is not harmful to people.
“All of those viruses impact the common carp and in no way to transmit to people or dogs,” she said, mentioning that viruses last for a few weeks.
