Braintree, Massachussets-based Geo Labs has confirmed the presence of Chrysene in the waters in and around Perdido Key, Florida. This substance was detected and absorbed by OPFLEX POM POMS and SWEEPS (OPFLEX is listed on the EPA’s National Contingency Plan) submerged near the beach just outside of Eden Condominiums on February 18th, 2011.
Geo Labs CEO, Dave Kahler stated, “We have now built a database of samples from Venice, LA to Pensacola, Florida utilizing EPA testing protocols. This is the first time we have detected Chrysene, which is most concerning as it is showing up in the water close to the beaches in Perdido Key, Florida.”
