Water levels so low in Nottawa Creek, fish become stranded and die

ST. JOSEPH CO., Mich. -- There isn't enough water in the St. Joseph River, and fish are getting stuck on dry land.

People in Nottawa Creek said that their crops are doing just fine and they want them to back off pumping for awhile.

Mills and dams don't have as much water flowing through them this year.

Neighbors said nearby farmers are to blame, and while they understand wanting more water because of the drought, they said if they keep going at this rate, there could be low water levels next year as well.
