Creek Turns Red in Stifft Station.

 

The creek through Stifft Station turned red yesterday, but nobody bothered to mention it to anybody until today. ADEQ, the city and FH got there about the same time to try to figure out what it was.

This is in the Plateau street/Valentine area.

City workers tried to figure out its origin. The one I spoke to said he had never seen this happen before.

What ever it is, it appears to be flowing out from UAMS, according to these men.

One of these men speculated that it might be mortar dye from construction at the Hospital, which sounds very reasonable,  but I prefer to just assume it’s a river of blood. — A friend told me that there’s a zombie apocalypse book which sets its origin-of-outbreak at UAMS, this appears to be the book.

It’s looking like it’s going to be a red Christmas in Stifft Station.

This is the creek that crosses under 7th street, east of White Water Tavern. It is now a river of fake blood. Actually, I’m told that the ADEQ technician determined it to be some kind of dye. Mortar dye perhaps?

UPDATE: Here is the city’s press release about it:

“The water in Plateau Ditch in the vicinity of UAMS (Pine/Cedar & Markham intersection) is red due to a leak. This color is caused by a dye added to the UAMS hot water circulation system. The dye is not toxic or harmful. UAMS is trying to find the water leak. Under usual operations, the UAMS water circulation system does not connect into the City of Little Rock’s storm water system.According to ADEQ, this red dye does not constitute a safety or health hazard.”

    Just FYI, sometimes you’ll see this if someone dumps transmission fluid. It’s about the same color. We had this happen near us — a transmission place said the pipes to their waste tanks had backed up and it ended up dumping transmission fluid into our ditch (which runs to the creek that goes into the lake which is our drinking water.) Nice!

    It’s not harmful or toxic.. but we don’t know what it is. Thanks UAMS!
