Eel River Flooding Washes Away Last Traces of ‘Reggae On The River’

PIERCY, CALIF. – The Eel River is swelling with recent rain water, causing flooding along most areas throughout Humboldt. Scientists are most astonished by the raging water’s ability to finally wash away the urine and crap left over from last summer’s Reggae on the River music festival.

“There’s been so much pee here for years,” said a local woman who said she herself peed on the banks of the Eel while intoxicated during last year’s festival. “I didn’t even swim last year…just added to the pee and environmental devastation.”

Flooding has been welcomed and experts are optimistic on these processes, due to the multi-year California drought. Current river levels have not reached this high since 2013, making this the first ROTR rinse in almost three years.

Due to this phenomenon of natural cleaning, ROTR 2016 may have the chance of being swimmable, thanks to our good friend El Niño.
