"I attached another shot of the strange blue substance working its way into the Meramec River.

The GPS coordinates of the spill site is approximately
N 38deg 05' 37.2" W 091deg 08' 18.4".

One should be able to drive to this site by way of Thickety Ford Road.


This blue substance has the texture of sand, but had no odor to speak of, and didn't cause any unusual readings on the PH, conductivity and phosphate meters."
