Take them to a university or even a contact some of the local high school chemistry teachers. They might be able to do some very simply tests for
obvious toxins and oddities and the like.
Indeed, you could
, in theory, perform some tests yourself, but this might be quicker and more effective and not invovle buying glassware and
chemicals and whatnot.
edit to add
(no, i don't have to read a significant portion of a thread before I respond!
a mix of stagnant water and clay
Just for kix, the clay should settle out if you put it in a jar. Might take a while, but it will. Might be worth trying.
