In 1968 an accidental discharge of cadmium plating solution caused a significant fish kill near Ravenna, Ohio. Water (130 samples) from West Branch Reservoir in 1971 and 1973 contained up to 0.055 mg/l cadmium, and fish (nine species, muscle tissue) contained up to 0.34 mg/kg. As a control, water and fish were sampled from Nimisila Reservoir. Cadmium was not detected in water (eight samples, 0.001 mg/l detection limit) and was detected in only one of eight species of fish (0.21 mg/kg).
