GREENVILLE COUNTY, SC (WYFF) - Greenville police have announced what caused the Reedy River to turn a bright neon green color Saturday afternoon.
Public information officer Johnathan Bragg said in a release that the green is from dye that was placed in the water.
Bragg said the dye is used for tracking down sewer leaks.
The City of Greenville tweeted around 5 p.m. Saturday that the green water has been contained.
Bragg said the river will remain green until clean up is complete, and that the dye is not toxic.
