Residents in Llanwrda, a village in Wales, saw a river dramatically change its colour. It happened after a milk tanker accidentally overturned and spilled its contents into the water. The river Dulais turned completely white following the crash, and officials are not aware of the quantity of milk leaked from the tanker. A video uploaded on social media captured the milky white water cascading over a small waterfall as the milk was swept downstream. Pictures were also shared on the internet, showing the extent of the spill.
The Natural Resources Wales (NRW) posted a photo of the River Dulais in white with the caption, “An unknown quantity of milk has entered the River Dulais today following a RTC that involved a milk tanker which had left the road. This has led to significant discoloration along the river & officers have been on site to assess the impact & will continue tomorrow morning.” The dairy-filled tanker reportedly crashed off the A482 in Carmarthenshire and ended up in the River Dulais.
