Why is a section of the Elizabeth River orange?

A section of the Elizabeth River near the Ingleside area of Norfolk was turned orange, the Elizabeth River Project reported Friday morning.

Upon further investigation, environmental experts discovered a large, 275-gallon tote of red mulch dye in a residential backyard, which they believe was discharged into a nearby storm drain.
