10. The Colorado River

www.cnn.com

This murky yellow-brown mess is becoming a common site for tourists and locals who utilize the river system in Colorado. The Environmental Protection Agency of Colorado is in charge of protecting waters like this, and somehow, they’re also the ones to blame. The organization dumped millions of gallons of pollutants into the Animas River after trying to open a nearby mine in order to purify the contaminated water it contained, leaving it a toxic mess. The agency said it was a mistake, although that does little to rectify the situation.

The pollution doesn’t stop there.
