Psyche Bend Lagoon I


This lagoon (a former irrigation drainage disposal basin) and the surrounding vegetation have been severely affected by saline drainage water and shallow saline groundwater. Sulphur salts have oxidised and the water has become acidic. The release of iron gives the lagoon its reddish colour.
