Here the beavers did not finish college and have not known how to build a dam that really hold the stream.
I have no idea what caused the water to take on such a color...iron in the water??? I actually touched this, it's not so much the water, but some sort of slime just below the surface of the water that caused the rust coloring.
Sometimes water carries silt clay with many iron compounds and give that orange water, I'm not a geologist but if you remember the photos of the silver mine that I made a few months ago, appears a mountain stream with similar colors.
Yes, I do remember that photo of yours; I forgot all about it. That could very well be the explanation as to why the water appears as it does.
There are occasions when a river is diverted just where iron ore, may be an explanation for the sudden colored water. It seems to me clay or ferrous oxide, or perhaps a mixture of both.
I was doing a bit of research earlier today, yes, iron ore is common in this area...it explains why the water is tinged as such
I do not think pollution, rather a natural
it is iron ore, as I thought...it never dawned on me, but the name of the brook is Orebed Brook trail (ore for iron ore)...what a dummy I am!!!
