The river's enchantment made it so that anyone who drank or bathed in the water fell into a deep sleep and when they finally awoke, could not remember anything for a long period of time.
Significance in The HobbitEdit
When Bilbo Baggins and a company of dwarves travelled through Mirkwood on their quest to the Lonely Mountain (Erebor), Bombur, while trying to get out of a boat clumsily fell backwards into the river. He fell asleep for many days and dreamt of elvish feasts, and when he awoke, he could not remember anything since the Unexpected Party.
