CocaCola in Kerala

http://www.outlookindia.com/article.aspx?227376

This is the case with the CocaCola plant in Kerala which details the damage caused to the ground water in that area. The intriguing part is pH factor testing. Outlook (magazine) got the ground water tested from Sargam Metals, Chennai, whose lab is accredited by the government's department of science and technology and Cocacola, in response, got the water tested from R-FRAC which is a reputed, independent, national Accredition Board of Laboratories and ISO 17025 certified Lab supported by Ministry of Food processing industries, govt of Karnataka.

Sargam Metals reported the pH factor to be 3.5 (deadly!) while RFRAC reported 6.89 (potable). The permissible limit is 6.5 to 8.5. What CocaCola did here is not to say that they are not polluting ground water, but made those figures completely irrelevant. If you can fetch a number, so can we.

From my 10th standard Chemistry knowledge, testing pH is not complicated and will not have several parameters that each accredition uses selectively to arrive at the favorable numbers. Makes me suspicious!
