Recently, a video of "watering the fields with red water" attracted the attention of netizens. Is it true that the red water in a well flows to a piece of wheat field? What is red water? Recently, CCTV reporters visited Ningjin County, Xingtai City, Hebei Province, where the incident happened.
Reporter finds the place where "red water" irrigates farmland
In the video circulated on the Internet, we can see that there is a continuous flow of reddish brown water from irrigation wells to farmland along the canals. This well is located in Dongwang Town, Ningjin County, Xingtai, Hebei Province, and adjacent to 308 National Highway.
It can be seen from the aerial photos that the red irrigation canal is in sharp contrast to the green wheat field. Now it is spring ploughing season, and many villagers use 'red water' to irrigate their farmland.
A chemical plant near the canal has been shut down
The reporter observed at the scene that although the water well had stopped watering, there was still water left in the sink from the previous days, which was obviously reddish brown. The length of the sink is about 20 meters. The more water, the darker the color.
