Down river from Brazil dam flood

An aerial view of the Rio Doce (Doce River), which was flooded with mud after a dam owned by Vale SA and BHP Billiton Ltd burst, at an area where the river joins the sea on the coast of Espirito Santo in Regencia Village, Brazil, November 23, 2015. The collapse of two dams at a Brazilian mine has cut off drinking water for quarter of a million people and saturated waterways downstream with dense orange sediment that could wreck the ecosystem for years to come.

Seagulls fly near the mouth of Rio Doce as the river joins the sea on the coast of Espirito Santo, in Regencia Village, Brazil, November 22, 2015. Nine people were killed, 19 are still listed as missing and 500 people were displaced from their homes when the dams burst at an iron ore mine in southeastern Brazil on November 5.

The sheer volume of water disgorged by the dams and laden with mineral waste across nearly 500 km is staggering: 60 million cubic meters, the equivalent of 25,000 Olympic swimming pools or the volume carried by about 187 oil tankers.

A view of the mud which flooded Rio Doce is seen on the coast of Espirito Santo, in Regencia Village, Brazil, November 22, 2015. Scientists say the sediment, which may contain chemicals used by the mine to reduce iron ore impurities, could alter the course of streams as they harden, reduce oxygen levels in the water and diminish the fertility of riverbanks and farmland where floodwater passed.

And so much silt will settle along the bottom of the Rio Doce and the tributaries that carried the mud there that the very course of watershed could change. REUTERS/Ricardo Moraes

Seagulls fly near the mouth of the Rio Doce on the coast of Espirito Santo, in Regencia Village, Brazil, November 22, 2015. Researchers are testing the river water and results should be published over the coming weeks, giving a better idea of the contents of the mining waste. One cause for concern is that compounds known as ether amines could have been used at the mine to separate silica from the iron ore, in order to produce a better quality product.

They can also raise pH levels to a point that is environmentally harmful. REUTERS/Ricardo Moraes
