Soil was collected at Buffalo Bayou Park, all data and results were recorded and documented.
This sample was collected by the Buffalo Bayou at Buffalo Bayou Park.
Sample taken at 29.59 Latitude, -95.59 Longitude
Soil sample collected from Ballester's Fishing Area in Morgan's Point, Texas. Results are negative for OP hyldrolysis.
Soil sample acquired from a ditch near a pipe on site of a water treatment plant in Slidell, Louisiana. 1 gram of sample is incubated in LB media for 1 week at 30 degrees celcius.
Stopped on the side of the street near the facility, near a large electrical box and plenty of weeds.
Sample was positive for paraoxon degradation.
Samples pictures under "sample background".
Sample was taken from a barren area by the water. The day was hot and it had not rained in a couple of days so the sample was dry.
Verdant Tree Farm Soil Collection
Collected soil sample. Weekly results.
Sample collected at 12:04pm 8/25 and it was dizzling rain when collected
Week 0 Smells like death
Week 1 still smells pretty bad
Week 2 the smell starts to vanish
Week 3 smell and color vanishes
Week 4 no visible color or smell
Week 5 Paraoxon appears slightly yellow for Carbon and Sulfur Medias
Sample dug next to the pond in Meyer park.
The sample was able to tolerate Paraoxon but it could not degrade it.
Soil sample was collected under a bridge next to a stream in Buffalo Bayou Park.
Soil sample placed into enriched media partially sealed to allow the bacteria that is found within the medium to breathe, and incubated for 1 week at a temperature of 37 degrees Celcius inside the rotational incubator to simulate a controlled environment
Sample results displayed are a week after the initial incubation process
Sample collected near contaminated soil in Houston Tx and grown in two different media SSM and CSM, ass well as in two different types of pesticide per media.
The soil sample was collected from the banks of the Buffalo Bayou Hike & Bike Trail near the University of Houston-Downtown.
Soil was collected, and submitted to professor from Sugarland Memorial Park.
Week 0 soil
light yellow turbid solution with dirt visible at the bottom and top of the sample
This sample was collected near the Brazos River. The bacteria isolated was found to tolerate Paraoxon but unable to hydrolyze it.
This soil sample was taken from beside the road in front of two chemical factories, located in/near Almeda Heights close to Pearland, besides Beltway 8. Could not get into the small street right in-between the two factories as it was gated.
Sample was obtained near the San Jacinto River, below US 59 North towards Cleveland.
Sample collected approximately 10 inches below the top soil at around 12:35 P.M.
Soil taken from 12 inches below frozen surface. Sample analyzed by Abigail Miller.

The soil sample was collected from a retention basin that flooded during Hurricane Harvey.
Sample was collected at Sugar Land Memorial Park.
Strain could tolerate pesticide but not degrade it. Negative Result.
Average Colony count= 2,016
PX MP negative due to only having growth but not hollows around it. sample cannot break down OP
The sample was collected in the Stude Park surrounded by a lot of plants.
The presence of growth on my Glycerol Minimal Media agar plate indicates I have bacterial strains that are capable of tolerating the pesticide, Paraoxon. I also have a few colonies with halos which are an indication of hydrolysis, meaning that I also have a strain that might be capable of degrading OP compounds.
Location where soil sample was collected and the first tube inoculated with soil sample in LB media.
