Carnon River at Bissoe
Carnon River at Bissoe
The river level is high due to recent rains. Red mineral staining can be seen on the grass at the river's edge due to minerals being washed out into the river upstream. The land here is contaminated with arsenic which is also probably being leached into the river. The river itself does not look unhealthy, which plenty of weed in the river bed, but I would not like to drink it!
