SUDS: Send Us your Dirt from Sandy

Help uncover what chemicals lurk in Hurricane Sandy's sediment.
Collect and send in sediment samples from Sandy's aftermath.

In the wake of Superstorm (hurricane) Sandy, many thousands of people are affected by flood waters which brought sediment (mud, sand, and dirt) into homes and businesses. We are interested in learning what chemicals may be present in this sediment and in the flood waters, and we need your help! We are asking people who are recovering from Sandy to collect samples and send them to us so that we can analyze them.
