FRIDAY and Saturday's king tide and flooding led to concerns that a wall at the QAL red mud dam had been breached on Saturday morning.

However, according to Rio Tinto there was no breach.

It's believed the discolouration of water coming down the Boyne River was from a residential subdivision development close to the river further upstream.
