GONZALES - It may be the summer season for fish kills in south Louisiana, but recent kills in two ponds at Oak Alley Estates subdivision in Ascension Parish could not have come at a worse time.

The dead, stinking fish floating along the banks of ponds in the upscale subdivision earlier this week surfaced amid a nearly two-year legal fight.

In August 2011, Alvin Perry Jr., his wife and four other families sued over maintenance of the two ponds, the management of the association and access to its records.

Perry and the other plaintiffs claim their association has not maintained the common area lakes, including removal of aquatic weeds.

The Advocate reports the president of the homeowners association declined comment on the advice of the association's attorney.
