Why is there brown slime in the stream?

People are often surprised to learn that iron related bacteria don’t just grow underground, they are also common in streams and rivers. Karen E. Jackson, Water Resources Agent, Richland County, Clemson University has an excellent article on it, well worth a read. I have included some photos from the north of England back in 2007 where the streams had lots or iron bacteria growing in them.
