It is not the first time that the water in the Tietê River has turned dark. In August 2017, the same situation was registered.

In addition, a little earlier, in November 2014, the river turned dark and caused the death of 40 tons of fish, which were removed from the Ajudante stream, a tributary that flows into the Tietê river.

This Saturday (28), after a month of drought, rain was recorded in cities in the interior and in the capital of the state of São Paulo. According to the Somar Satellite of the State Civil Defense of São Paulo, the rain that occurred is considered one of the most voluminous in 2021.
