Hey all, I'm wondering just what would happen to fresh water source like a river and a lake when you dump a great deal salt into it. Would the salt clear out eventually or would it linger? If it lingered how long would it stay in the water? In my work in progress a king, facing an inevitable overthrow by a rebellion, decides to to have the last laugh. He dumps all the salt he has gained from trade into all the nearby lakes and rivers in the kingdom. He also dumps the salt into the soil so nothing can grow. Fast forward a few generations and when the MC travels to this old kingdom he finds the land dead since very few plants can grow and water so filled with salt it can't be consumed. How plausible is that outcome? Thanks in advance.
