Here's something you don't see every day in Lafayette, green water in a coulee.

This photo was taken by Rose Must in the Rivers Bend subdivision in Lafayette and it shows bright green water flowing through the coulee.

She was asking why the water is so green and it appears that the water may have been dyed green. According to someone's comment on the photo, the water was dyed green to test drainage.

If so, I feel more comfortable about it be discolored. I was hoping that it wasn't something else causing the water to turn green here in Lafayette.

And by the way, if this dye works so well, why haven't we used it more on St. Patrick's Day? It would be awesome to dye the Vermillion River on St. Patrick's Day. Just a thought.
