Overview
Sample Description

<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. To get the sample, I climbed down to the edge of the shoreline and dug my hole where the grass was growing. There was litter and visible oil marks on the shore that I could see.&nbsp;</p>
