Looks like red clay. They should plant kudzu to hold down erosion.

"China is well known for having areas with a lot of steep hillsides and a lot of land-use practices that promote soil erosion and soil going into rivers," Stanley said. "You can get red-colored clays that wouldn't be a whole lot different from having a big dose of dye go in there. But if that's the cause, I'd imagine there would have had to be a huge storm or a huge amount of clay go into the system."

Great. Now stop imagining things and take your asses upstream to check.

It is just a bunch of teenagers who found the chemical that turns pools red when you pee.

Remember, folks. Deregulation is the way to success for America.

In case that website sucked as much balls for you as it did for me, here are some other photos:

Relax, it's just a pollutant phenomenon.

Sounds like one of our Canadian rivers. That's just what they look like when somebody tosses in some hacked up bodies.

No, it turned V8 orange.

This thing is usually algae or iron oxide isn't it?

this happens about once a month, is it really that mysterious any more?

Well, that would explain the lice, flies etc.

I would have considered a bargain for my first and second born. Getting it taken care of for only my firstborn? How can I afford not to do it?

Wow. Not only is it very red, it's completely opaque. Even in a small clear bottle held against daylight. A dye wouldn't do that. Looks more like clay silt, although that would have to be a oddly high concentration of clay.

Living in the Gulf, I've seen algal "red tide" many times, including the really bad blooms in previous decades. It was nothing like this. Our worst red tides are more like the water is slightly off color if you look closely. Not the consistency of thick tomato soup.

Too be fair, American scientists investigating what is probably an environmental problem caused by a corporate misconduct combined with government corruption is not something you just stroll in and casually do in China.

I was going to submit this with "Now some rivers run high, some rivers run low
When her river runs red, then she's starting her flow",
