Very dirty



Just kidding. Most Pudong skyline photos show a muddy Huang Pu, so yes, I guess so.

yes the Huangpu River is very very dirty. Better these years after hundards of million were poured into cleaning it up. But it still is dirty.

You can't tell how "dirty" a rive is by looking at it; there is "clean" dirty and "dirty" dirty. No matter what, this river would look dirty because it is near the ocean and carrying lots of mud. What really makes a river dirty is if it is carrying chemicals or sewage, and you can't tell that by looking at a satellite image. There have been rivers that muddy that I have drank out of and it was perfectly safe. But I'm guessing that the Huangpu has some bad stuff in it, though again you can't tell just by looking down at it.
