Simply doing a Google search "Detecting aluminum in water' brought me reams of pages that I could of investigated. My idea here was a simple way to
capture rainwater and determine the content of aluminum in the samples. Of course one would need a baseline for comparison, and who knows if there
even is data on pre-seeding aluminum activities. I'd think there would be, but it's anyone's guess.
I did however come across a website where this paragraph caught my attention as far as the poisoning effect on aquatic species.
Biological Effects Of Aluminum: Toxicity
There are many known biological effects of aluminum, nearly all of which are negative.14 Aluminum toxicity has been extensively studied in fish,
especially freshwater fish, but less so in other organisms, including marine fish.15 In freshwater systems, the toxicity of aluminum is a function of
pH, with aluminum typically more toxic at lower pH. The reasons for this include the solubility, the speciation, and the nature of the interaction of
aluminum with the surfaces of organisms as the pH changes.14 At pH 7, aluminum can bind to the gills of fish, inducing asphyxiation.15

A curious thing while reading this site information, was that as far as accumulated aluminum in water was concerned, the Gulf was the most
contaminated area worldwide. With the many runoffs along all the tributaries that feed the Mississippi river, it only stands to reason a lot of
airborne contaminants would be condensed and available to capture in testing for trace elements such as aluminum. I'm sure there would also be many
other related contaminants being washed out of the Heartland making it's way down the Mississippi River to it's final destination, the Gulf of
By the way, testing water for aluminum is quite difficult for the average Joe wanting to prove anything by collecting their own specimens were they to
want to confront and prove we were being sprayed against our will. It's quite a complex procedure to my knowledge.
Lastly I will add this link: And for you Vets. pay close attention to minute 10:30
