VICTORIA — Horrified nature-lovers at Goldstream Provincial Park watched as the Goldstream River turned bright green late Wednesday afternoon.

The fluorescent green colouring appeared to start about 500 metres on the Victoria side of the entrance to the park and, over the course of an hour, the substance flowed down into the environmentally sensitive estuary.

By 5:30 p.m. the river, known for its dramatic salmon runs, eagles and other wildlife, was back to its normal colour.

Ministry of Environment teams were immediately sent to the area to investigate and members of Langford Fire Department collected samples for analysis.

No dead fish or animals had been found by early evening.

Earlier in the day a fountain beside Veterans Memorial Parkway in Langford also turned bright green, said Langford Fire Chief Bob Beckett.

The earth is puking from contaminants?

Looks like an abundance of allege growth speared on from lack of sunshine or wind as they both supply the turnover of water and the re-supply of oxygen. Some of the over growth trees are a good indicator.

Prank posted above, nuff said
Sometimes, simple is better

Did anyone read the article I posted....
the province’s Ministry of Environment confirmed Friday that the chemical dumped into the water was non-toxic. It said lab results confirmed the mystery substance to be fluorescein, a synthetic organic compound widely used in testing sanitary water systems.
