Bubbling- Lake Peigneur – Assumption Parish
We, the citizens of Vermilion, Iberia parishes and Louisiana are filing this petition, this 24th day of August in 2012 regarding the issue of AGL Resources/ Jefferson Island Storage Hub’ s natural gas salt dome cavern expansion at the Jefferson Island Salt Dome under Lake Peigneur.
Currently, at the Napoleanville Salt Dome in Assumption Parish, Louisiana a catastrophe involving a giant sink-hole grows daily. Contamination of drinking water and earth from salt cavern gas storage leakage into the drinking water has resulted in evacuation of hundreds of residents with an unknown future. . . .
