Rita's rains are the first to wash over the land since Katrina. White foam in the collected puddles indicate a bunch of nastiness in that water. Any of you folks that read the article I wrote after taking samples from local waterbodies know that this was expected. Once the rain washes down from all of the inland rivers, where numerous fish kills have been reported, it would be interesting (nay frightening) to run samples for enterococci, voc's, metals and phosphates/nitrates.
