People near Lake Charles woke up this morning to quite a shock - neon green water in the Calcasieu River.

Many people feared the worst and though it could be a chemical spill.

It turns out, the neon green was just the result of a dye being used for drainage testing.

A Phillips 66 plant nearby was conducting the tests, but forgot to notify the public.
