CANADA  *  BC Victoria river turns green
December 30,  2010   
 Horrified nature-lovers at Goldstream Provincial Park watched as the Goldstream River turned bright green late Wednesday afternoon.
The fluorescent LIME 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.

LEBANON Beirut River turns blood red
February 16, 2012  The Beirut River mysteriously turned blood red Wednesday after a stream of unidentified red liquid began pouring from the southern bank of the river in Furn al-Shubbak. The source of the liquid had yet to be determined Wednesday evening, as the river continued to empty the red-colored water into the Mediterranean Sea. Government and local officials rushed to the scene at the Chevrolet crossing of Furn al-Shubbak Wednesday morning in an attempt to locate the sewage canal that was dumping the red-colored water but they were unable to locate the source. Accusations were traded among officials from the municipalities of Hadath, Hazmieh, Sin al-Fil, Furn al-Shubbak and Shiyah. Eyewitnesses working in the area told The Daily Star this was not the first time the river had turned a different color. Several business owners around the Chevrolet crossing said that colored water pours into the river roughly every two months but no one pays attention to it.It was the quantity and brightness of the red liquid that grabbed the attention of many passersby and commuters on different bridges in the city Wednesday. Environment Minister Nazem Khoury said the source of the water was likely from Hazmieh or Baabda. “I call on the municipalities of Hazmieh and Baabda to cooperate swiftly to find the source of the pollution and its type,” Khoury said in a statement.

Earlier in the day, Khoury sent an environmental team to the area to examine the water. The team, headed by ministry official Bassam Sabbagh, took a sample of the water to determine its composition and whether it contained dangerous pollutants. The samples will be examined Thursday because state laboratories were already closed by the time the sample was taken. “The sample we took will be examined tomorrow [Thursday] morning … and we will know whether it is blood being mixed with water or if it is some sort of a color dumped in it,” said Sabbagh. A similar incident took place in the Chinese Jian River last December after a factory illegally dumped red dye into the river, which is located in the northern Chinese province of Henan. Some cities use non-toxic dyes to color rivers on special occasions. In Chicago, the river is dyed green every year in the celebration of St. Patrick’s Day. According to Sabbagh, test results will help the ministry determine whether the substance is a chemical pollutant or blood from a nearby slaughterhouse. “First we thought it was blood, but it seems like it is a kind of coloring dumped by a factory,” said Sabbagh, who also said that the test to determine the type of the chemical would take a week. Sabbagh said the municipality and other ministries should help the Environment Ministry in its investigation. “We need the help of the local officials to have a clear idea of the sewage network in the region,” he said. According to Sabbagh, who heads the ministry’s Environmental Pollution Control Office, maps of the sewage network would help officials locate the source of the red-colored water. “After finding the source, it would be a matter of hours to get to the factory and the area where the [colored] water is originating,” said Sabbagh adding that swift action would be taken against those responsible for it. Saad Elias, an adviser to the environment minister, did not rule out the possibility that a slaughterhouse could be behind the red color. –Daily Star

OREGON Lack of water plagues birds; thousands dying in Siskiyou's dry refuge marshes
Mar 29. 2012
At least 10,000 migrating snow geese and other waterfowl have died this spring at drought-plagued Lower Klamath and Tule Lake national wildlife refuges along the Oregon border in Siskiyou County.
Biologists are calling the avian cholera outbreak one of the biggest drought-related die-offs in the refuges' more than 100-year history.
"We're going to estimate about 15,000 dead by the end of the outbreak," refuge manager Ron Cole said.

In an area that's increasingly stricken by drought, Cole said something needs to be done to protect the birds, and he warns of a more and larger die-offs in the years to come if the refuges don't get increased water allocations as promised in a settlement that also includes plans to tear down four dams on the Klamath River.

CHINA Yangtze River Turns Red and Turns Up a Mystery
Sep 7, 2012  

For a river known as the "golden watercourse," red is a strange color to see.
Yet that's the shade turning up in the Yangtze River and officials have no idea why.
The red began appearing in the Yangtze, the longest and largest river in China and the third longest river in the world, yesterday near the city of Chongquing, where the Yangtze connects to the Jialin River.

The Yangtze, called "golden" because of the heavy rainfall it receives year-round, runs through Chongqing, Southwest China's largest industrial and commercial center, also known as the "mountain city" because of the hills and peaks upon which its many buildings and factories stand.

The red color stopped some residents in their tracks. They put water from the river in bottles to save it. Fishermen and other workers who rely on the river for income kept going about their business, according to the UK's Daily Mail.

While the river's red coloring was most pronounced near Chongqing it was also reported at several other points.
Officials are reportedly investigating the cause.

Water turns blood red in several Aussie beaches
Nov 27, 2012
Blood red water has stained several Australian beaches, making the popular surf spots resemble something out of a horror movie.
Sydney's iconic Bondi Beach and nearby Clovelly Beach have been closed so authorities can test the water.
While red algae isn't toxic, people are advised to avoid swimming in the algae-stained water because its high ammonia levels can cause skin irritation.

"It has got quite a fishy smell to it," lifeguard Bruce Hopkins told the Australian Associated Press. "It can irritate some people's skin but generally not much more than that."
Despite the warnings, it didn't stop some swimmers, including the one pictured above, from jumping in to the surf.

2 Great Lakes hit lowest water level on record
Feb 6, 2013  
TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. (AP) — Two of the Great Lakes have hit their lowest water levels ever recorded, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Tuesday, capping more than a decade of below-normal rain and snowfall and higher temperatures that boost evaporation.
Measurements taken last month show Lake Huron and Lake Michigan have reached their lowest ebb since record keeping began in 1918, and the lakes could set additional records over the next few months, the corps said. The lakes were 29 inches below their long-term average and had declined 17 inches since January 2012.

The other Great Lakes — Superior, Erie and Ontario — were also well below average.
"We're in an extreme situation," said Keith Kompoltowicz, watershed hydrology chief for the corps district office in Detroit.
The low water has caused heavy economic losses by forcing cargo ships to carry lighter loads, leaving boat docks high and dry, and damaging fish-spawning areas. And vegetation has sprung up in newly exposed shoreline bottomlands, a turnoff for hotel customers who prefer sandy beaches.

Mississippi River is Drying Up
I am keeping this thread separate from misc. waters, as its the main shipping route thru mid-America.
Barge traffic is seriously hampered by low waters.

Tigris and Euphrates are 2 of the 4 rivers of Eden

Tigris and Euphrates rivers losing water reserves at a rapid pace
March 13, 2013
A large portion of the Middle East lost freshwater reserves rapidly during the past decade. New data revealed already an arid region of Tigris-Euphrates Basin, which grows even drier due to human consumption of water for drinking and agriculture. The research team observed the Tigris and Euphrates river basins – including parts of Turkey, Syria, Iraq and Iran, and found that 144 cubic kilometers (117 million acre feet) of fresh water was lost from 2003 to 2009 – the roughly equivalent to the volume of the Dead Sea. About 60%  of the loss was attributed to the pumping of groundwater from underground reservoirs. When a drought shrinks the available surface water supply, irrigators and others turn to groundwater.

The team led by Jay Famiglietti and Kate Voss of the University of California–Irvine (UCI) and Georgetown University with other researchers from NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center and the National Center for Atmospheric Research, used data acquired by twin gravity-measuring satellites of the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE).

According to Jay Famiglietti, GRACE data show an alarming rate of decrease in total water storage in the Tigris and Euphrates river basins, which currently have the second fastest rate of groundwater storage loss on Earth, after India. The rate was especially striking after the 2007 drought. Meanwhile, demand for freshwater continues to rise, and the region does not coordinate its water management because of different interpretations of international laws.

GRACE data show a seasonal fluctuation of total water storage, and also an overall downward trend, suggesting that groundwater is being pumped and used faster than natural processes can replenish it. Within any given region on Earth, rising or falling water reserves alter the planet’s mass, influencing the gravity field of the area. GRACE satellites tells us how water storage changes over time by periodically measuring gravity in each region.

The researchers calculated that about one-fifth of the water losses in their Tigris-Euphrates study region came from snowpack shrinking and soil drying up, partly in response to a 2007 drought. Another fifth of the losses is caused by loss of surface water from lakes and reservoirs. The majority of the loss—approximately 73 million acre feet (90 cubic kilometers)—was due to reductions in groundwater. According to  Jay Famiglietti, principal investigator of the study, that’s enough water to meet the needs of tens of millions to more than a hundred million people in the region each year, depending on regional water-use standards and availability.

The 754,000-square-kilometer (291,000-square-miles) Tigris and Euphrates basin jumped out as a hotspot when UC Irvine researchers looked at the global water ups and down. Within the seven-year period of GRACE data, researchers calculated that water storage in the region shrunk by an average of 20 cubic km (16 million acre feet) a year. This rate of water loss is among the largest liquid freshwater losses on the continents. Meanwhile, the region’s demand for fresh water is rising.

“They just do not have that much water to begin with, and they’re in a part of the world that will be experiencing less rainfall with climate change. Those dry areas are getting dryer,” Famiglietti said. “They and everyone else in the world’s arid regions need to manage their available water resources as best they can.”

I have read a few years ago these rivers are shrinking.
At that time bible prophecy preachers believed it was to allow China-Russia to invade Israel on horseback.
Now I wonder if the 200 million man army might be Muslims.
I dont know.  Only a thought.

The Tigris and Euphrates Rivers are 2 of the 4 which bordered the Garden of Eden.
Jerusalem is the heart of the Garden of Eden.
Temple Mount - Mount Zion - Mount Moriah is where some believe God created Adam.

4th generation pastor Perry Stone, Manna Fest, is a fantastic bible preacher!

Revelation 16:12  
And the sixth angel poured out his vial upon the great river Euphrates;
and the water thereof was dried up, that the way of the kings of the east might be prepared

New Zealand drought
March 15, 2013
 New Zealand North Island hit by worst drought in 30 years.  God's judgment on SIN approved in NZ - even by the church.
A drought has been declared on the entire North Island of New Zealand in the worst dry spell in 30 years.
Farmers are especially hard hit, with losses in agriculture expected to shave about 1% off economic growth.
The capital Wellington is said to have just 18 days of water left, and parts of the South Island could soon be hit.
But there is likely to be some relief over the weekend when the first decent rainfall in two months is forecast.

Satellite images show how parts of New Zealand have turned from lush green to parched brown.
Farmers are being offered financial assistance by the government to deal with the crisis.
Winemakers describe the current conditions as perfect.
