What's in the water?

The water in the drainage canal in Montegut is orange

The Terrebonne Parish canal has been discolored by the high level of iron oxide in the water. 

Why? Its caused by the dying wetlands in and around Pointe-aux-Chenes. Saltwater which surged inland by Hurricane Ike  is the most logical reason
for killing the vegetation.
