Discussion of Gulf Oil Spill regarding Navarre Beach, Florida; the good, bad and ugly reports; however most of the reports of oil on Navarre Beach are good!

Is the water being tested for dispersants?
From what I understand Corexit 9500 is more toxic than the oil.

Thanks AG!

I wonder why people aren't asking more questions about the dispersants..

It's not that no one is asking. It is that no one is giving answers.

Thank you Beachgirl, that's exactly what I was thinking.
Why do you think that is?

good site, sb - thanks!

i took the liberty of copying/pasting what is on the first page of that link today:

Water
Water Data >>
EPA surface water samples collected June 26, 29 and July 1-6, 8–10, 12, 2010, along the Gulf Coast found no compounds exceeding chronic water benchmarks. These results include data for compounds found in dispersants.

Surface water results collected May 21 through July 12, 2010 along the coast of Louisiana were measured for four of the chemicals associated with dispersants (2-Butoxyethanol, 2-Ethylhexyl Alcohol, Propylene Glycol, and Dioctyl sulfosuccinate) but did not detect them.
