Cantonment Florida is a town to the north of Pensacola Florida! I had a Friend named Harry Murchison collect water from three places so that I could see what is in the water on a microscopic level!!


Here is some Fake and True information On Harry! As you can see he is very use to going into water!

I received the water from Harry on October 7, 2004! The water was collected from: 1. saltwater/freshwater overflow from the bay in the woods, 2.lake/steam standing water in some woods ... should be freshwater fed, 3.lake on a golf course ... should be fresh water as well !

As you may recall, this particular area on the Florida Panhandle has been hit farily hard by the Hurricanes this year! And this limited the areas Harry could access as there were many trees down and blockages piled up! Also, it has been a very wet year down there! So, I did not know what to expect! The Brackish bay water was very turbid! The salt content was 0.06 % and the PH was 7.5! I keep a higher salt content in my Pond! The Stream water had a salt content of 0.00 % to 0.02% while the PH was only 6.0! Rather low I thought! The Golf Course water also had a PH of 6.0 and a salt level below 0.02 %! So, salt intrusion form the stroms was not a problem when the water was collected! Although there were a lot of sand grains in the samples! Maybe that is natural Harry had said he had caught a very large fish in the Golf Course Pond in the past! So, I don't know what PH fish in Florida thrive in or can exist in or if this is just a temporary condition form the storms!ll !
