OriginsEdit

Located in Louisiana, Lake Peigneur was a popular spot for freshwater fisherman, at least until an unusual man-made disaster occured. In 1980, a Texaco oil rig had accidentally drilled into the Diamond Crystal Salt Company salt mine beneath the lake. The roof of the mine caved in, creating a large whirlpool which sucked in nearby barges, oil platforms and even the shore. Lake Peigneur is now of salt water consistency and is much deeper.

EffectsEdit

Increases the salinity of any water it contacts until the liquid is completly crusted over. When it touches organic matter, the material begins to immediatly dessicate. During this process, the subject will turn more granular and coarse like salt until they are bone dry.

TriviaEdit
