It looks beautiful this bizarre phenomena in the polluted city of Huizhou in China. It’s the result of countless green plants that began to rapidly sprout up in the river. City official aren’t to happy about it and every year have to spend allot money to remove it. But it may turn out to be a blessing in disguise.

According to Rocketnews: “scientists in the area are beginning to see potential uses for what was once thought to be a dangerous nuisance.

Aside from looking kind of pretty, this blanket of duckweed is said to help clean up the river because they absorb excess nitrogen and phosphates. The cluttered blankets they make also help to trap larger pollutants, help to prevent mosquito breeding, curb excessive water loss from the river due to evaporation, and provide shelter for young fish to grow”
