Here’s a discussion on various environmental influences on the housing market…

Chicago is also famous for a somewhat peculiar annual event: dyeing the Chicago River green. The tradition started in 1962, when city pollution-control workers used dyes to trace illegal sewage discharges and realized that the green dye might provide a unique way to celebrate the holiday. more info: History Channel

Today they use 40 pounds of dye instead of 100 pounds, to minimize the environmental damage.

but I digress…
