Oily Sludge Seen at Some Beaches in Udupi District: What is It? Click to Know

Coloured water was found on the sea shore at some parts of Udupi recently. Oily sludge and micro plastic bits were found while touching the water. Though it is normal to see oily sludge on the seashore, this year the quantity was huge and it also caused itching when touched and has a burnt smell.

This is likely the result of throwing ship waste in the middle of the sea which reaches the seashore during monsoons when the waves turn ferocious. Recently during the Asani cyclone, the waves were rough and carried the trash which had oily sludge.
