27 MILES

Near the Ohio River in the southeastern part of the state of Ohio, houses the largest concentration of coal burning power plants in the world. Scattered over thousands of square miles are innumerable abandoned underground coal mines. Rainwater seeps into caverns and becomes contaminated with toxic levels of heavy metals. This water then flows out into the 27 miles of the Sunday River, turning it and the surrounding creeks yellow, orange and red as the metals oxidize.

Everything is intertwined. The streams these pigments come from connect to other streams, rivers and eventually the ocean. This might seem a local issue but it is not – it is a global issue. One can isolate and examine moments on a micro scale but if you pull back, you can see that they all connect in a wholly-dependent macro system.
