LOCK HAVEN — The contents of a cylinder found in a creek in Clinton County was identified by the Department of Environmental Protection Monday.

The DEP discovered the container held the chemical ammonia.

An investigation began because dozens of fish were found dead over the weekend in Harvey’s Run.

It is still not clear if the ammonia was the reason the fish were killed.
