Birds fly on Rio Doce (Doce River), flooded with mud after a dam, owned by Vale SA and BHP Billiton Ltd burst, in Linhares, Brazil, November 21, 2015. The collapse of two dams at a Brazilian mine has cut off drinking water for quarter of a million people and saturated waterways downstream with dense orange sediment that could wreck the ecosystem for years to come. Nine people were killed, 19 are still listed as missing and 500 people were displaced from their homes when the dams burst at an iron ore mine in southeastern Brazil on Nov. 5. Scientists say the sediment, which may contain chemicals used by the mine to reduce iron ore impurities, could alter the course of streams as they harden, reduce oxygen levels in the water and diminish the fertility of riverbanks and farmland where floodwater passed. According to the forecast of Brazil's environmental regulator IBAMA, the sediment will reach the sea in Espirito Santo state coast this weekend. REUTERS/Ricardo Moraes
