Long-Term Hazards of Toxins Disturbed by Flood Waters Underestimated
Raging rivers in flood swirl up pollutants out of their sediments that stem from environmental pollution decades or centuries ago. Such harmful substances can not only cause ecological damage in the river, but can also deposit themselves on flooded areas and affect crops, grazing livestock and humans.
