FRANKFORT -- Environmental officials say untreated wastewater from a distillery in Kentucky has spilled into a creek, killing an unknown number of fish.
Dead fish and discolored water were discovered Thursday in Glenns Creek near Frankfort.
Kentucky Division of Water spokesman John Mura says the water treatment system at the Castle & Key Distillery failed, sending the oxygen-depleting waste into the water.
Mura said the distillery will be issued a notice of violation. Penalties could reach $25,000 per violation per day.
