I removed the offending posts Paracelse - they weren't yours :)

I was perplexed when reading this as I did not believe chloride concentrations precipitate out of the water red.  Usually chloride precipitates white (in my experience).  The closest chemical reason I have seen to produce a red precipitate like this is iron oxide, usually when there is ARD drainage from a mine nearby.  Turns out after a quick google search red salts are very possible.  Learn something new everyday.

Southern France has only bauxite mines, I have no idea if there would be an effect on the salty waters mixing with the soft waters of the Rhone river.
