The town of Milk River is associated both with the river of the same name and the mineral spring also found in the area. The river itself is the main source of the water that irrigates the vast agricultural regions of the Clarendon plains, but is largely unnavigable and infested with crocodiles. Milk River Bath contains some of the most radioactive waters in the world. On average, the waters here are a consistent 90 to 95 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the year and contain high levels of magnesium, calcium, sulphate and natural chloride. The mineral waters flow directly from a source in a rock and are especially recommended for use by those suffering from rheumatism, arthritis, sciatica and nerve complaints. The waters, however, are so hot and radioactive that patrons are warned to stay in for no more than ten to twenty minutes at a time, and then for no more than three baths per day.
