[Graphical Bug] Rain Catcher Fields

I don't think water is supposed to look like this.

(Tried with addons off as well despite screenshot )

This is so far the only water reflection i've seen this happen on.
(Perspective : @672 Quests on my first character)

I play on Ultra High. (Fullscreen Windowed)
It is not a consistant thing, but it seems to be tied to Water Reflection. (It seems to only be showing on Medium / High...not on low)
Noticeable when leaving the water offscreen and going back into it, moving it off screen it goes back to normal briefly
Maybe a limitation of my graphics card being low(ish) tier?

8GB Ram
R9 270X 4gb (Driver : Crimson 16.7.1 )
Game is on a WD Black
Windows 10 (SSD)

Report filed as well using this same information.

    I can confirm this bug with black water while doing this quest, it happens somehow randomly when looking at one of these pools. I've made two screenshots of the same pool, with black water:
    After just looking up (to the sky) and back to the same point:

    My PC is i5-4670, GTX 1080, 16 Gb DDR3 so I play Ultra settings

    Ok good, both AMD/Nvidia cards seem to have it so its the game and not our cards/drivers then.

    Corrupt texture file maybe that needs fixed on their end perhaps?
