Description
Discusses the disastrous year 2000 overflow of a Romanian reservoir that held heavy metals and cyanide, pouring the deadly mix into rivers that feed the Danube and killing all living creatures in its path. A tide of death began to flow from the waste pool of a flooded gold mine in Romania on January 30, 2000. Deadly cyanide swirled down the Tisza River, killing every fish in its path and threatening drinking water supplies. Worse yet, the poison soon reached the Danube -- one of Europe's most important rivers. Discover what caused this environmental disaster and learn about the chances of similar accidents occurring elsewhere on Earth.
