Gulf oil spill stirs up activism, Sarasota Herald Tribune, November 12, 2010:
Another organization's mission is to monitor water quality by sending samples to labs for testing. The group, Testing Our Waters [actually Testing THE WATER], has sent dozens of samples to a lab in Mobile at its own expense.
Distrustful of the federal government's response and monitoring, the group, started by Sayer Ji of Bonita Springs, wants to keep a watchful eye out for BP oil and dispersants.
It is a tough and expensive challenge in a world awash in crude to pin a sample that proves to be oil as BP's.
