Hazmat and city crews work to clean up after pranksters mess

Just days after pranksters turned the water at the Myriad Gardens green, crews are working to clean up the mess.

On St. Patrick’s Day workers arrived at the gardens to find the area ponds bright and green.

City officials confirm the chemical the pranksters used is called “Flourescein.” Flourescein is an orange powdery substance that turns green when it comes in contact with water.

Hazmat crews were using acid to wash the dye from the boulders and stone work Thursday afternoon.
