This sample (taken from the Appomattox river) was collected at 9:00 am on 01/14/16. Distance from Hercules chemical plant is less than .25 miles.

Analysis revealed;

1) Aminopyrazole derivatives @ 410.92 nm

2) dipyrrometheneboron difluorides (BDP)

Suspected organophosphates, but I need to fashion a better prep for detection in the sample.
