Mysterious Substance Appearing in Waters Across North America

On March 21, shortly after Clintonville, Wisconsin began experiencing mystery booms, a strange white substance was discovered east of Clintonville in the Fond du Lac River.  On March 29, a similar substance was discovered in Sheldon Creek in Burlington, Ontario.  On April 7, a milky white fluid was observed bubbling up in Coal Harbour, Vancouver BC.

The Zetas explain:

ZetaTalk Chat Q&A for April 14, 2012

"Two of these incidents occurred in a river or creek bed, and as we have explained these spots represent a thin place in the crust, so the crust sags and thus water pools there. In Vancouver, the milky substance bubbling up was in an inlet bay, in an area just east of the San Andreas fault line. Note also that all 3 incidents are in a line from the West Coast to the East Coast, and thus the emergence of this milky substance could be related to the bowing of the N American continent. Despite the assurances of those assigned to investigate and explain, no identification of the substance was done! So what is this substance?

Just as the air itself can become solidified into Angel Hair on occasion, due to electrical changes in the particles holding the atoms together, this type of phenomena can occur in water too. The bowing can drop sinkholes, shift bridges, and rip open crevasses, but this is all surface activity. When movement in the deeper rock occurs, then the electromagnetic screech we have referred to as a frequent warning of a pending earthquake increases. Rock pressed close together allows electricity to flow via water trapped in the rock layers, and this moves electricity. Thus, temporarily, the water composition changed, making it appear milky and causing bubbles to emerge. Simple as that." 


This phenomena was also reported in Codorus Creek near York, Pennsylvania on March 22 and Oak Creek in Montecito, California, also on March 29.  A chronological progression of associated media reports is provided below:

Strange Substance in Fond du Lac River

Fifteen feet below Brooke Street in Fond du Lac, a mysterious substance is floating in the holding tanks of a pumping station. The substance was first noticed by a fisherman Tuesday afternoon. The man saw the liquid coming out of the pumping station.

Public Works operations director Stephen Kees says two technicians confirmed both the substance and the smell.

"This is a very milky white substance, kind of like between a petroleum smell and like a sulfur like smell," said Fond du Lac Public Works Operations Director Stephen Kees.

The fire department placed a boom in the Fond du Lac River to stop the liquid from spreading. Fire Chief Peter O'Leary says the pumping station has been shut down since the leak was noticed. O'Leary says only a small amount of the oily substance found it's way into the river. Crews will be spending most of the day pumping out what's left of the oily substance at the pumping station and Chief O'Leary says they have traced the source back from the pumping station sewer line to a recycling center about a block away.

"We went with Public Works to go do some testing of a nearby manhole and saw a substance in the water that wasn't normal, it was a murky white substance that smelled like it was petroleum based," he said.

O'Leary says he believes the leak is coming from a filtration system underneath Sadoff Metal Recycling. O'Leary says lab testing should confirm what the substance is. Sadoff CEO Mark Lasky did not want to go on camera, but tells FOX 11 the company takes environmental concerns seriously. Lasky says Sadoff is conducting it own investigation to see if it is the source of the leak. Lasky says the company has already paid for trucks to pump nearly 17,000 gallons of contaminated water from the pumping station.

"We don't know how much of that is contaminated, let's just says it's all contaminated and we could have had a significant environmental impact on our rivers," O'Leary said.

A hazardous situation averted thanks to an alert citizen.

Strange Substance Found in Codorus Creek in York

The white substance was determined to be more than 90 percent water-based, a fire official said.

York, PA - Members of York County's hazmat team traced a white substance spotted in the Codorus Creek on Thursday morning in York to a city block where other liquids have been dumped in the past, according to a fire official.

Responders tracked the substance back to a storm drain in the 300 block of West Gas Avenue, said York City Fire/Rescue Services Assistant Chief John Kottmyer.

About 7:47 a.m., city firefighters and hazardous materials workers were called to the bridge on West Philadelphia Street, near Grant Street and North Pershing Avenue.

Someone who works at the nearby Susquehanna Commerce Center had spotted the substance, Kottmyer said.

About 10 a.m., Kottmyer said the substance had stopped flowing into the creek.

Hazmat workers tested the substance at the scene. "Whatever it was ... they were able to determine it was better than 90 percent water-based," he said.

The high percentage of water meant it presented minimal harm to the creek - although, ideally, nothing foreign should be introduced into the creek, Kottmyer said.

As far as the amount of the substance, Kottmyer said it wasn't as though it had blanketed the creek, but it was emptying into the creek and clinging to one of its banks for about 10 to 20 feet.

Kottmyer added that the state Department of Environmental Protection had also been called to the scene to extract a sample to be tested.

Suspicious Substance Found in Montecito’s Oak Creek

A milky white substance was discovered Thursday in Oak Creek in Montecito. An analysis determined the substance is soluble in water, and that it is not a hazardous chemical or pesticide.

Specialists so far have confirmed that the milky white substance is neither a hazardous chemical nor pesticide.

The Montecito Fire Protection District responded Thursday evening to a report of an unknown substance in Oak Creek, in the 1500 block of Bolero Drive.

First responders arrived about 5:15 p.m. and found a milky white substance in the creek, according to department spokeswoman Geri Ventura. A scene survey was performed, but personnel were unable to determine the origin. The scene was secured.

Ventura said a hazardous materials unit assisted with sampling and analysis of the material.

Hazmat specialists determined the substance is soluble in water, and that it is not a hazardous chemical or pesticide. Further investigation by the California Department of Fish & Game will be necessary to determine any additional mitigation measures.

Other responding agencies included the Santa Barbara City and County Fire Departments.

Mysterious Substance Turns Burlington Creek Milky White

A mysterious substance in Burlington's Sheldon Creek has sparked an investigation by the Ministry of the Environment.

Sheldon Creek turned “milky white” after an unknown chemical spill was found in the waterway late Thursday afternoon.

The area is about 500 metres north of the Queen Elizabeth Way near Appleby Line.

Halton police issued a public warning Friday, though by mid-afternoon the spill was cleaned up and the flow from the source appeared to have stopped.

Still, the substance remains a mystery.

Kate Jordan, spokesperson for the Ministry of the Environment, said that although the chemical has not been identified, it is known that it “did not have an impact on aquatic life in the creek,” Jordan said.

Samples of the chemical have been taken to a lab for analysis to determine what it is.

“Until we know the MOE's test results, everyone is proceeding with caution,” said Jeff Black, Burlington's manager of field services.

“It's a bit alarming when you see it,” he said of photographs from the scene. “It is a milky white substance that originally clouded the water extensively. It was a bit drastic.”

“Since then the cloudiness and the milky texture have gone away and it's cleared a bit.”

A cleanup team from the Hamilton firm Newalta was on the site with vacuum trucks and flush equipment.

Roger Bojanowski, branch manager of Newalta's emergency response unit based in Stoney Creek, said water and the contaminant was pumped from the creek and safely stored pending the MOE's analysis of the chemical.

The chemical is heavier than water, he said, and Newalta used an underflow dam that allowed water to pass over it but collected the contaminant for removal.

As of Friday evening, they still had not determined if the problem was caused by a spill or a discharge.

Jordan said the spill was discovered by a resident of the area who called the ministry's spills action line. The ministry has taken samples to analyze. Halton police said it appears the spill originated from the area of John Lucas Drive, south of Mainway Drive.

Strange Fluid Entering Vancouver's Coal Harbour

A mysterious white fluid spotted bubbling up in Vancouver's Coal Harbour Saturday morning may be waste associated with construction activity, city officials say.

Residents walking along the waterfront noticed the whitish-grey flow bubbling up from below sometime around mid-morning.

It took some time, however, to sort out what the substance may have been.

First responders were baffled.

"At this time we don't know what the substance is," said Vancouver Fire and Rescue Services Battalion Chief Rod MacDonald, whose crew arrived at the scene at around 11 a.m. PT.

MacDonald said it appeared the milky liquid was coming from an underwater storm water outflow pipe.

"We're waiting for the arrival of [the] sewers [department] so they can indicate to us whether this is a normal situation or not," he said.

At 1:30 p.m., an agent from the City of Vancouver's environmental protection branch arrived on scene.

Shortly after 2 p.m., workers from the city's sewer department arrived.

They confirmed the discharge came from a storm sewer and, whatever it was, the flow had stopped by mid-afternoon Saturday.

Sewer operations workers flushed the pipe with clean water and said no more of the strange fluid was coming out.

They suspected materials from a construction site may have been dumped into a street-side storm water collection grate somewhere in Coal Harbour or the West End.

City officials say that kind of dumping is against city by-laws, but has happened before.

MacDonald said agencies with the Port and with the federal government were notified about the incident, and that no dead fish have been spotted yet in the area of the outflow.

"The wildlife in the area seem to be OK so far," MacDonald said.

"It's a positive sign, but not a conclusive sign."

Mysterious white substance in North Delta creek likely paint, city says

 The substance did not appear to be toxic and was cleaned up on July 10.


A white substance found in Briarwood Creek is likely a paint spill, Delta staff said today (July 11).

In the afternoon on Tuesday, July 10, significant amounts of a white material flowing down a stream towards Watershed Creek. The city came and investigated after reports from residents came in about the unusual color of the water.

According to Delta’s senior environmental officer, Erin Clement, the substance looked like it could have been paint that was washed down during the heavy rainfall earlier in the week.

The substance did not appear to be toxic, she said, as there were live invertebrates on the bottom of the creek. There are no fish in that creek, but the water does lead to Watershed Creek further down.

Delta staff looked at storm drains that lead into the creek to try and identify the source of the substance, but couldn’t find a definitive location. An after-hours truck was called in to clean up the residue which by then had settled near the bottom of the creek..."

Neighbors concerned over white substance in Coldwater Creek (Oct 1)

HAZELWOOD, Mo. - There is a mystery substance in a metro creek. Neighbors called Five on Your Side wanting to know why the water in Coldwater Creek near St. Cin Park has turned white.

While there are concerns about radioactive contamination in the creek, there is no indication the white coloring has anything to do with that.

On Sunday, the Missouri Department of Natural Resources sent staff to collect samples.

"I'm astonished that it is pure milk white," neighbor Mary Oscko said. "Isn't there a public responsibility, if somebody did this or saw this, and they know how it happened, to let the public know what's going on?"

Not knowing is why they're concerned.

"You can't see through it at all," neighbor Julie Hartwell said. "I just want to know if it's toxic."

"Of course it's going to alarm us," Oscko added. "This is a five to six-acre park with multiple playgrounds. We have kids playing here all the time."

A spokesperson for the Metropolitan Sewer District says, after inspecting a roughly 2,000-foot stretch of the creek, the white substance was not coming from any of their systems. The DNR is handling the investigation.

Investigators with the Department of Natural Resources were back out taking samples of Coldwater Creek Monday morning, after the waterway turned milky white over the weekend.

Initial water samples have already been sent to the Missouri Environmental Laboratory and the DNR is awaiting test results.

So far, the DNR has found no dead fish, and anecdotal accounts claim the water is slowly starting to clear upstream to the south..."

Mysterious White Substance Found in Alabama Creek (Aug 29)

When a white substance popped up at a creek near Will Rayburn's home in Killen he figured it would be gone by the end of the day.

"It's not the first time it's happened but it is the first time it's happened to this extent," said Will Rayburn.

Rayburn says he and his family have noticed the white substance about two other times in the creek, but this time it was different.

"You couldn't even see an inch into the water with this," said Rayburn.

He describes the substance as odorless and milky. When the substance got worse instead of going away Rayburn became very concerned because the creek located off of County Road 65 in Killen feeds into Shoals Creek.

Rayburn said other residents in the area also live off of well water or just play in the creek.

"There are kids constantly playing in it," said Rayburn.

Rayburn called the Alabama Department of environmental management to let them know about the problem.

"They said they would try to have somebody out in a couple of days," said Rayburn.

By the time ADEM came to Rayburn's home to test the creek water the substance had disappeared. Rayburn and his aunt took a sample of the water to give to ADEM but they would not test it because ADEM officials did not physically collect it themselves.

"They said if it happens again to call them back but they don't know exactly what it was," said Rayburn.

Rayburn says he hopes he never sees the milky white substance again but if he does he hopes ADEM can solve the mystery.

Kalama River Turns White Near Mt St Helens Volcano (Oct 13)

The Kalama River turned milky white from its upper reaches to as far downstream as the Modrow Road Bridge and the cause is unclear.

“We’ve seen similar milky conditions on the South Fork of the Toutle since mid-August, but (it has been) very consistent without clearing, and the Kalama has had these pulses,” said Bryce Glaser, a scientist with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Kalama’s white tint looked more like it was caused by glacial till — sediment sloughed off the land by glaciers and washed into rivers. But the Kalama bubbles up from a spring, not the flanks of Mount St. Helens, like the Toutle does.

“That would make a lot of sense for the South Fork (of the) Toutle because of the debris field,” Glaser said. “It’s a little less clear how that would affect the Kalama.”

Glaser said the Kalama had a similar tint to it earlier this fall. But like Tuesday, he said it was strange that the color appeared a day or two after this weekend’s rains. Typically, rivers swell and look muddy 10 to 12 hours after heavy rain.

About a week before Mount St. Helens rumbled in 2004, the Kalama River turned white — as it did in the weeks leading up to the 1980 eruption. Residents mused that the river was perhaps a predictor for future eruptions.

The USGS discounted that theory Monday, as they did in 2004.

Iceland Lake Turns Mysterious White Color (Jul 29)

Part of Mývatn has turned white and it does not appear to be a natural phenomenon.

First spotted two days ago, it is not being caused by any known organic substance nor algae.

The water is milky white and opaque in a 150-meter-wide swath around the northern bank.

The milky white swath is only a few centimeters below the surface.

Biologist Dr. Árni Einarsson says he's never seen anything like this in the water before.

"We have to view this in a microscope and this is not organic in the sense that these are bacteria or algae."

"This is something else."

Mysterious White Substance Flows into Michigan Drainage Ditch (Aug 21)

Emergency management officials don’t yet know what the substance was that was found filling a drainage ditch leading into the Crooked River Wednesday, prompting a hazardous material clean-up response.

In a news release issued late Thursday, Charlevoix-Cheboygan-Emmet Emergency Management Dirctor Gregory Williams said firefighters from the Alanson-Littlefield Fire Department were called to the area of East Street, east of U.S. 31 in downtown Alanson at about 4:15 p.m. to a report of a milky-white substance flowing into the drainage outflow.

Fire officials called in the tri-county emergency management team and the St. Ignace Hazmat team to assist, and the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality and EPA also responded to asses the environmental impact. The EPA then authorized a clean-up contractor to remove the unknown project, according to the release.

Williams lauded the actions of the fire department in containing substance and preventing it from migrating into the Crooked River.

“The fire department was able to contain most of the product by placing a temporary dike in the drainage ditch which helped prevent it from escaping into Crooked River. Their quick actions kept this incident from becoming a much larger problem. They did a great job,” Williams said in the news release.

Crews from multiple agencies remained on the scene until 4 a.m. Thursday finishing the clean-up using a large vacuum unit, Williams said

Williams said authorities were not able to immediately able to identify the substance in drain, but both the EPA and Michigan Department of Environmental Quality took samples for further testing.

Williams said the substance did not have any notable odor, and said it seemed to settle to the bottom of the ditch, helping in the clean-up. He said it was hard to estimate how much of the substance there was in the ditch, mixed with water, but he described it as “substantial” and that it turned the entire ditch white.

He said authorities checked area storm and sanitary sewers and were able to determine that the substance was most likely illegally dumped in the East Street area sometime between the hours of 1-4 p.m. on Wednesday.

Authorities ask anyone who may have seen any suspicious activity near the river and East Street during that time frame to contact the Emmet County Sheriff’s Office at (231) 439-8900 or 9-1-1.

On Thursday evening a thin line of a white substance could been seen still slowely meandering from a drainage pipe leading into the ditch. Williams said the white substance was likely residual from what was in the pipe the day before.

Mysterious Substance Turns Creek White in Vancouver BC (Jul 29)

A mysterious substance that turned Byrne Creek a milky white colour on Monday and Tuesday has a local streamkeeper concerned.

Paul Cipywnyk said he was alerted on Monday afternoon when he found the water running through the new fish ladder below Griffiths Drive had turned almost completely white.

A walk further downstream turned up no dead or distressed fish, Cipywnyk said.

The cloudiness cleared later in the day, but the creek turned milky white again on Tuesday.

Mysterious White Substance Appears in Alabama Creek (Jul 27)

An unknown milky-white substance flowing into Big Spring Park brought out the HAZMAT team from Huntsville Fire & Rescue on Saturday night.

After an initial inspection, firefighters summoned the Hazardous Materials unit to work the scene. The park on the east side of Church Street was taped off while crews took samples and searched for the source.

The white substance appeared to coming from storm drains, said Schultz, who noticed milky-white water through road grates around Spragins Avenue and Spring Street, just west of's downtown office.

One thing is certain at this point: the substance is not structural foam that the city plans to use to fill subterranean cracks and fissures in that section of the park.

General Services Director Jeff Easter told Monday that the city has not yet hired a contractor to inject the expandable foam into the ground around the spring and canal.

Still no word on the cause.
