In recent years, problems have developed in utilizing the aquifer. These problems have arisen from declining water levels, saltwater intrusion in coastal areas, and inadequate supplies of fresh ground-water locally. This pollution can come from both the lateral and upward movement of saltwater in coastal areas and by upcoming of saline water in some inland areas. Often companies pump out large quantities of water which creates a suction in the aquifer. If the suction area has a tributary to the ocean, it will automatically suck water from the ocean into the aquifer. This @ of pollution is the most common, and it is self-correcting. The aquifer has a filtering mechanism that is implanted in its composition. Since the rocks that make up the aquifer are mostly igneous and sedimentary, the water flows through very narrow openings and the dense materials are sifted out. Some pollution of the aquifer is not self-correcting. The non-coffecting pollution is the presence of pesticides in the ground-water. The only way for the pesticide residue to be removed is for it to be pumped out of the aquifer. Who knows where it will end up? It could be in a glass of water that is drawn from the tap. Many people have deep wells that tap into the water of the aquifer, and they will be the recipients of the pesticides and other human-induced pollution of the aquifer.' Source

I would say that if this video is real then oil/chemicals will get into the aquifer. Oil in rain in LA The video was taken in River Ridge LA which is just south of Lake Pontchartrain.
The video looks real to me but I've been fooled before. Thoughts? Can anyone confirm oil in rain?

you could see a sheen but that could be from rain water mixing with oil from the street. proper measurements would be the only way to look into it. Ive seen that the main consensus on this site is that it cant be picked up by storms clouds cause the oil doesnt evaporate, but in all honesty im sure most of us has seen wierder stuff. Im still worried about the coming hurrican season but even if we dont get hit with one, the cold fronts we get down here will push the oil into my area. Its only a matter of time. Gonna def start stockin up on water now.
