The federal government is proposing nearly $3 million in fines against the city of Birmingham, Ala., over an incident that officials say was one of the largest fish kills in the history of the Endangered Species Act.
The penalty, proposed Thursday, stems from a 2008 accident in which a city maintenance crew breached a dam and drained a spring pool containing one of the world's largest populations of the small, endangered watercress darter. Scientists estimated that 12,000 were killed, more than half of the pool's population of about 20,000.
