“Wow, the Yangtze River is like the Yellow River now!” Yesterday, at the Chaotianmen Pier of the Yangtze River in Chongqing, many tourists found the color of Yangtze River became unusually red. The environmental protection department speculated that this may be due to river sand brought from upstream during flood season.

Yesterday afternoon, Yuzhong District and Banan District Environmental Protection Bureau staff told reporters that the river in Chongqing city district area is indeed redder than usual, however after investigation, there were no illegal sewage dumping found around the coastal area. So the initially speculation of the cause was due to river sand brought from upstream during flood season. The specific cause is still under investigation.

    Sand and sewage? I thought it was some kind of red algae bloom. Is there something in the Chinese diet that makes them crap blood? Drinking the water, maybe?

      Did dirty water give the Egyptians norovirus and that’s why the Jewish people didn’t consumer leavened bread because they were picky and more hygienic about food?

    THEY THOUGHT IT WAS BLOOD. ACCTUALLY THE WATER BECAME RED AS BLOOD, AND THIS SEEMS TO BE THE REAL INTERPRETATION.

    the last picture is complete bullshit, rookie mistake for anyone who created this photo, i am a professional photographer and i can CLEARLY see the photoshopped edged around the mans arm who is holding the water bottle look closely as the TWO different pigments, ALSO between the 2 mens heads notice in the background how the river is brown and not a chalky red color. another ROOKIE mistake the man standing behind the guy holding the water bottle look at his arm is orange like a color film

    LIKE I SAID THIS IS ALL BULLSHIT AND A PUBLICITY STUNT.
    thankyou (:

      “Laura Croft” – seriously? Why anyone publish a piece about their river turning red? Really? Think about it. China has the largest, mostly unregulated industrial revolution known to mankind and are notorious for heavily polluted lakes, rivers, etc. Why would this be BS? Obviously some people think its a sign of the end of times, but clearly its pollution. China is very careful about the news that leaves its country but something of this magnitude where millions of people could snap a photo, made it out.
