HERE IS THE LATEST REPORT FROM JAMES FOX WITH LAB ANALYSIS ON THE WATER FROM ALL ALONG THE GULF COAST & MORE.
Attached 12 page report provides analysis of water samples taken 20 miles at sea off Grand Isle. In addition to the data and the calculations, the
text also includes a description of the analytical methods for a general audience as well as enough detail for technical readers to duplicate the
methodology if needed.
Summary/Significance: (see attached pdf for full detail):
Overall, the water sample contained a surprisingly high concentration of propylene glycol between 349 and 417 ppm (v/v) indicating the presence of an
even higher level of Corexit (of which propylene glycol is only a part). These results are consistent with the evaporation of volatile components from
oil to leave tarballs and an especially high concentration of the dispersant on the surface of the water. Toxicity tests have shown that a
concentration of 25 ppm of Corexit 9500 in oil-free water can kill most fish and only 2.6 ppm of Corexit has the same effect in the presence of
dispersed oil (which is the case with the analyzed sample). The considerably higher Corexit surface water concentrations implied by the propylene
glycol concentrations in the analysis suggest that humans may receive a harmful exposure to these chemicals and dispersed oil by swimming in the water
or inhaling the sea spray. Overall, this water analysis suggests high Corexit concentrations in surface water near New Orleans and suggests a public
health hazard that should be taken seriously along the entire Gulf Coast.
