“Three months ago, all the fish died in the lagoon, thousands and thousands of them,” resident Herminia Meza told the Associated Press. “The smell was unbearable, and we were overwhelmed by flies. About a month ago the herons died, and it turned a reddish color.”
Experts suspect pollution from the Waltrading SA tannery on the banks of the lagoon to be the cause.
