High Levels of E-coli in Texas Floodwater

This incomplete prediction has happened. Please everyone be careful.

Predictions 8-26-17   The water is poison.  Be careful ( I believe they are talking about storm locations)

The facts presented by CBS on 8-31-17: “A Texas A&M University analysis of floodwater samples from the Houston area shows E. coli levels that are 125 times higher than is considered safe for swimming.
Terry Gentry, an associate professor in the university’s Department of Soil and Crop Sciences, says even walking through floodwater could lead to infections and other problems.
Gentry says tests from a sample in Cypress, a suburb northwest of Houston, showed bacteria levels 15 times higher than acceptable for wading.” Quoted by http://dfw.cbslocal.com/2017/08/31/high-e-coli-levels-in-houston-area-floodwaters/

    Additional problem..
    Excerpt from RSOE report..

    “Oil from the Exxon Mobil Beaumont refinery has spilled outside the facility onto a nearby county road, spokeswoman Ashley Alemayehu said. “We reported to the government not too long ago that we are monitoring a sheen on Gulf States Road,” she said. That road, owned by the county, runs between Exxon Mobil and Arkema facilities towards the Neches River. The lower part of the refinery is flooding, she said. “The levee for the refinery is at 10 feet,” and water has gone over it. The refinery is working to contain the spill and has “deployed emergency response teams to provide additional environmental protection.” The company has notified authorities. Exxon Mobil’s chemical plant is still dry, she said, and parts of the refinery at higher elevation are secure.”


  2. Scott Pruett — the head of the EPA under this administration — was put in this position in order to undermine and gut the EPA of funding/resources since the EPA is holding the oil and gas corps that he and others have lucrative stocks in. Hopefully this event will change hearts and minds but I’m still not convinced since $$$ talks.

      1. Now there are reports of 13 sites inundated with flood waters. At least one is a Superfund site meaning on the EPA list of the worst sites in the country. Many news outlets are reporting this but I will try and find something directly from EPA.
