Residents of China's Xianfeng County (Hubei Province) were surprised to find that the water in one of its rivers had turned green.

After several videos of the phenomenon were shared on social networks this Monday, the relevant authorities were informed. According to residents of the area, the flow of the Yemao River "was normal" on Sunday, reports The Beijing News newspaper.

 

Local officials said after an investigation that the unusual color of the water was not a sign of contamination. In an official statement, the Xianfeng water authorities explained that the color of the water was due to the addition of a sodium fluorescence marker, a non-toxic dye that is used for measurement tasks. Still, the environmental protection and water conservation departments took samples for inspection.

 

The use of the substance is part of a plan to build a canal that seeks to connect the river with a nearby reservoir. The experts stressed that the substance is harmless and will dissipate in a short time. And although the water supply was temporarily stopped, they promised that it would be restored soon.
