The Yarkon River after a chemical spill on November 10, 2008

After a major fire in the Sano Factory in Hod Hasharon, the effluent from their chemical operations was discharged into the Yarkon River.  Zalul sent Tzvika Forer to photograph the incident.  By the time he arrived at the scene much of the visible pollution had disappeared, but the strong, stinky odor was still very much present.
