11. Tualatin River, USA
Oregon’s Tualatin River is not the place to be if you want to take your dogs for a swim; close to a dozen dogs die there every year from exposure to toxic blue-green algae. A deadly form of bacteria, this algae can grow fast, quickly polluting a body of water into a deceptively pretty shade of turquoise. Those unfortunate enough to swallow the stuff can expect sickness and diarrhea at best, paralysis at worst.
10. Rio Tinto, Spain
You might look at this water and think that something isn’t quite right. Deep red water is strange and is usually not a good sign. Probably anyone will think that something is not right when a river has deep red water. Rio Tinto (or Red River) is a highly acidic river with a pH of 1.7 – 2.5. This means the Rio Tinto is as strong as stomach acid and is more than powerful enough to any fish that dare swim in it.
9. Lake Kivu, Africa
Lake Kivu is a shared resource between Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo. It sits on a rift valley that is slowly being pulled apart, causing volcanic activity around the area. However, 300 meters (1,000 ft) below the surface of Lake Kivu lies a ticking time. Over 250 cubic kilometers (60 cubic miles) of carbon dioxide, along with around 65 cubic kilometers (15 cubic miles) of methane gas, lurks under this body of water, enough to provide electricity to several countries.
8. Jacob’s Well, USA
Jacob’s Well is known to be one of the world’s most dangerous diving spots. The well is near Cypress Creek,in Texas and descends 9.1 meters vertically. If you go straight down you will reach the first chamber. Go further down and at an angle and you’ll reach the second chamber which is 24 meters below the surface.
7. Blackwater River, USA
Too much water can be a bad thing, even if the water itself can’t hurt you, the power of nature can. Just ask the folks around Blackwater River in Virginia, who have seen the waters rise and attack far more than usual these past few years. After close to 60 years of normalcy, the Blackwater River has overflowed and flooded nearby towns six times in the past 10 years.
6. Citarum River, Indonesia
The Citarum River plays an important role in the life of the people of West Java, however it is not doing well. In fact, it is known as the most polluted river in the world. And it’s all human’s fault.
The place is so filled with non-biodegradable waste and harmful chemicals that it’s practically toxic.
5. Potomac River, USA
Just outside Washington D.C., the Potomac River Gorge is a 14-mile stretch that extends from the Key Bridge in the District of Columbia north to the Great Falls of the Potomac. The gorge is a popular site for outdoor activities like kayaking, boating, fishing, and hiking enthusiasts.
4. The Blue Lagoon, UK
In Derbyshire, UK, there is a lake with a beautiful turqouise color but this is utterly deceptive.
It turns out it was a former quarry that was flooded and filled with calcium oxide.
The famous “Blue Lagoon” looks beautiful and became a popular swimming spot for locals even though warning signs already stated the dangers it possesses.
3. Boiling Lake, Dominica
The Boiling Lake in Dominica is not a lake at all but actually a flooded fumarole, which is a hole in the Earth’s crust. Located in the Morne Trois Pitons National Park, it is the world’s second largest hot spring and looks like it took its hotness to an entirely new level. Discovered in 1870, the water temperature along its edges is 82 to 92 degrees Celsius (180 to 197 degrees Fahrenheit).
2. The Rivers of Johannesburg, South Africa
Catching E. coli is no fun under normal circumstances; now imagine you were literally swimming in the stuff. That’s the reality around various rivers in Johannesburg, South Africa, where the amount of E. coli bacteria in the water goes way beyond acceptable levels. Some areas, like the nearby Cheetah Bridge, host 240 times more E. coli than what experts consider healthy.
1. Lake Karachay, Russia
Located in the southern Ural Mountains in eastern Russia, Lake Karachay has been described as the most radioactive body of water in the world. It could also be considered the most polluted place on the planet.
