What a bunch on crap there were over 1,000+ dead fish as of Saturday Night. I did not see anyone from the construction crew touch a fish the only people that did anything were residents who called an animal rescue group to get the duck and turtles, and 1 lone man who braved the knee deep mud with a plastic tub, dragged it across the road as the workers watched and deposited the fish in lake davidson. I guess thier non-interference could be construed as helping!!! I find it hard to believe that they so easily pump that disgusting water from the pond into lake davidson and contaminate that body of water. But somehow it was an easier to put city water back into the pond (Nice try but I think not) The fish all died on Saturday & Sunday. The cause was rapid evaporation from the heat. They could have easily left more water in the lake over the weekend but the fact is they just didn't care to think ahead. Hey, fish were going to die no matter what but just don't lie about the facts.

Davidson has alot of problems headed its way due to the poor constructed road (115) going through downtown and the wonderful use of a traffic light .
