GS Researchers Release Red Dye into Altamaha River

STATESBORO, GA – Georgia Southern University researchers say they will release 50 gallons of fluorescent red dye (rhodamine WT) into the Altamaha River outflow May 12-16.

The university says during the study, waters with a red tint may appear at various points along the Georgia coast as well as marinas, bays and estuaries. Researchers note that if the dye is sighted in any of these locations, there is no reason for concern because it is non-toxic to humans and aquatic organisms.
