Description
  • Abstract

    Analyses of surface water samples from August 6, 2010, for chemicals associated with dispersants revealed the presence of a dispersant-related chemical (specifically, bis (2-ethylhexyl) sodium sulfosuccinate) in one sample which was above the reporting limit but below the aquatic benchmark. Additional sampling and analysis conducted in this area on August 18 did not reveal dispersant chemicals above the reporting limit. The reporting limit is the level of a chemical that EPA's laboratory equipment can detect with accuracy.
