This is NOT work trucks:
LA17 very affected too . . . and it’s supposedly way over east of the butane tanks.
UPDATE: WED. — This activity continues and it looks obvious work trucks have stopped dumping fill on the berm roads (they make big marks on the helicorder graphs) so is the Parish still under a Code 1 alert like they said on yesterday’s blog post??

Lead plaintiff Dianne Sanchez claims in her new complaint that the sinkhole is radioactive, saying the defendants “had used the cavern as a deposit area for naturally occurring radioactive material arising from drilling into two defendant-owned salt caverns, including the one breached in the Bayou Corne area.”

. . . . [the suit says] “In early September 2010, defendants began reworking the cavern well, milling a section of salt higher than the existing cavern roof, at 3,400 feet deep, to see if the upper strata could be mined. This area extends for about 100 feet through the well casing above the cavern roof.
“On January 21, 2011, Mark J. Cartwright, president of Texas Brine Co. Saltville informed the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources (LDNR), via letter, about a failed integrity test of the cavern and suspicion that the cavern may have breached the Napoleonville Dome’s outer wall. These problems with the cavern led to the cavern being plugged in June 2011. The area milled in September 2010 may be the source of the salt dome breach.
“LDNR records show that defendant had been examining the cavern’s wall at least since June 2010.
“On information and belief, the public was not warned in January 2011, or at any time thereafter or at any time prior to the appearance of the sinkhole, of the potential danger resulting from the failure of this cavern and the general public had no knowledge of the storage of the radioactive material in the cavern.“. . .
