I am sending your message to our environmental network. I think that
our colleagues on that list may be able to help you. I am also sending
your message to the Agent Orange Working Group list, as you may want
some help in identifying contaminated areas in Phan Thiet.
Responses should be to: Nicolas Demblans <nicodemblans at hcm.fpt.vn>
Please let me know if you need further help.
All the best, Vern
> Dear Mr. Weitzel,
> I owe your name to Julia Shaw who told me you would be the best person I

> I am now working on a project of sustainable fresh water fish farming in
> Phan Thiet area. We have found a site and are now testing water and soil
> to make sure that there are not any persistent chemicals left.
> For the pesticides, we are testing DDT but I was wondering if there are
> any other kind of pesticides used in this area that we should check as well.
> Moreover, I am not sure whether there were some significant war
> activities around Phan Thiet but I thought as well about checking
> chemical residues related to this. Besides Dioxine, what other chemical
> do you think I should check ?
> Thanks in advance for your help
> Best Regards,
