Sample that has not been cataloged in a genomic data repository, with a positive number of both Paraoxon and Methyl Parathion bacteria growth
This sample was collected from a water drainage stream near a neighborhood that has seen consistent use of pesticides to avoid infestations.
The sample was collected on a section of land positioned in between the Brazos River and a dog park.
Collected at a steep Brays Bayou tributary channel that run-offs from nearby home gardens usually cover.
<p>Sample Collected on January 25 at 1426. The location was in River Terrace Park in Channelview Texas, 77530. Along the rocks wall between the Old River and land. In the immediate vicinity, there is a playground and a community of homes directly across the street. </p>
<p> converted farm to residential area</p>
<p>The soil collected clumped and damp. It was yellow brown in color with a clay-like texture. It was collected near a water treatment facility. </p>
<p>The sample was collected in an isolated location not too far from a park. The area from which the sample was collected was also near a bayou. There were many trees and untended patches of land. The sample itself had a very rough consistency and was light brown. It was slightly moist, possibly because of the rain from the day before. The sample was collected by digging nearly 8 inches near the root area of a tree. </p>
<p>I chose this location based on its vicinity to Buffalo Bayou and the EPA Superfund Site Patrick Bayou. The location is a park near a commemorating memorial to the Republic of Texas called the San Jacinto Monument. This spot sits at the mouth of the Buffalo Bayou and Houston Ship Channel where hundreds of ships travel in and out every day. There is a ferry at the end of the land mass along with a restaurant. There were also several warning signs posted near the water's edge banning visitors from fishing or swimming in the water.
