Water pollution is quickly becoming the most pressing concern for Chinese citizens. Stories have been flowing in about all sorts of things from sex dolls to OD victims have been found floating around in China’s rivers.
The previous incidences have all had relatively happy endings. This time however, a milky white river in Jiangsu city may hold more chilling implications for the local residents.
Last July there was a case of a milky white river in Wenzhou which was the result of a latex spill from a nearby trading company. Authorities determined the latex to be non-threatening and it eventually floated away.
Although this river bears a close resemblance to the Wenzhou case even with reports of a bad smell, there is one crucial difference. No living organisms are reported to be found in the 10 meter wide body of water.
At the moment there is no information regarding the cause or nature of this pollutant.
This also follows a case of an orange river in Jiaxing city created by excessive iron ions in the water last March.
