Getting accurate Topo shots of the mud surface and bottom was a disgusting messy job exposing us to the contaminates. Several times Tom became stuck in the mud and required assistance in extracting himself. One time contaminated water flow over and into his chest waders as he sunk into a particularly deep area at the Cannikin Ground Zero site exposing him to dangers of hypothermia, drowning as well as contamination. Luckily ropes and a floating water pump were in the immediate area that we were able to extract him.
