PLEASE DONATE for INDEPENDENT WATER TESTING!

All donations go directly towards the cost of testing the water. We use ACT Laboratories owned by Bob Naman located in Alabama. The cost of testing for oil is $60 for parts per million determination, $80 for an individualized hydrocarbon panel, and $325 for Corexit dispersant using propylene glycol and 2-butoxyethanol as markers. As of August 06 we have raised $680 dollars to cover our initial testing of 5 oil samples and 2 dispersant for a total of $720 + $75 for overnight shipping. The three test locations we have sampled and tested thus are Naples, Bonita Springs, Sarasota and St. Petersberg with the results positive for 1 ppm in Naples and St. Petersburg, with Bonita Springs and Naples negative. Most of this is an out-of-pocket expense thus far, so please do lend a hand so we can expand our testing into other crucial areas. Also, please leave a note when donating to grant permission to publicize your contact, even if only by first name. If you are interested in learning more about how to organize a test in your own region, or would like us to do this for you, please email Sayer Ji at sayerji@gmail.com or call 239-222-9180.  Also, sign up for instant updates as the reports from our statewide coalition of independent water testing partners become available.
