Elevated levels of mercury in some Bartlett Lake fish, ADEQ says

The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality, in association with the Arizona Game and Fish Department, has issued a fish consumption advisory recommending that people limit consumption of channel catfish and largemouth bass caught from Bartlett Lake in Maricopa County. ADEQ is issuing this advisory because recent fish tissue samples from Bartlett Lake contained elevated levels of mercury. The lake is at 20808 E, Bartlett Dam Road in Rio Verde.
