Sheriff's deputies in Marina del Rey are trying to figure out why the waters are green today, following a sighting reported this morning in the E Basin near the E-3200 dock, according to Described as "a bright green substance," authorities have been able to determine that it is "a non-toxic dye," but how or why it is in the water remains unknown. Is this the result of an accidental spill, or are there some pranksters who are over a week late in expressing their St. Patrick's Day spirit, Chicago river style?
