  1. This help a little when trying read their reports.
    Like this one ‘Continuing ORW 21 pump test (north of Sauce Piquante, west of Crawfish Stew) and surveying settlement rods at site’.
    I found ORW 21 on map that North of Sauce Piquante is Sauce Piquante Ln. and west of Crawfish Stew is Crawfish Stew St.

    I do not see a North or south on this map for those ORW Locations

  2. Curious, no mention of the bubbling site to the north..or the ongoing fill in of the road there that keeps ‘sagging.’ Sagging is bad….

    • oh, and Texas Brine doesn’t mention it on their ‘response’ page.
      They must be busy dreaming up some more flim flam for the next residents’ meeting next week…

  3. Maybe someone can make out where this is i need map before I know where this is at.

    3:20 p.m. New Bubbling Site Identified
    A new bubbling site has been discovered in 3:20 p.m. New Bubbling Site Identified
    A new bubbling site has been discovered in Grand Bayou on LA-69, 1/4 mile north of the Gator Corner. A video of the site is accessible at: http://www.youtube.com/user/assumptionla
    2/24/2014 — NEW GAS BUBBLES appear in Louisiana .. 1/4 mile NE of Bayou Corne

    • Walter, it is between these orange dots …
      Arcadia
      It is a short walk (1/3 to 1/4 according to reports) north of where Hwy 70 meets Grand Bayou.
      Bayou Corne (the river) is on the west about a mile on hwy 70… with Lake FUBAR half way between the two.

        That map you have there of Grand Bayou and Baton Rouge.
        So what you’re saying is the top of that map is South and the bottom of the map is North and the left side of map is East and the right side of the map West.

      • That map of the salt dome with the red line on it that is the top part of that salt dome the deeper you go down in ground that salt dome diameter get bigger.

      • yes… that was a really good map you pointed out (with that red line).
        The Acadian gas pipeline runs on that edge too.
        I think I have pipeline maps on the map page.
        They seem a little foolish drilling on that fragile spot (sideways drilling).

  4. They were doing “fingerprints” of the bubbling gas site to see if gas was from the sinkhole, EVERYONE who goes to that meeting needs to request results! ..HEY..that reminds me..what ever was the outcome on all the testing they did of the oil/etc coming up from the sinkhole???. Is it GOM BP oil? Never did see what they finally came up with. They said it was not a local oil….

  5. AND..what is the ‘new’ tagging level for the ceiling? Texas Brine had posted that as a comment..so if only 9 ft or so to “filled’..what is it now??? Another question to ask…is if full? did it sink more..is it spreading…??

  6. II Just LOVE to click this link and see ..”.South berm sagging, eh?” BRAWWWHHHAAAHH! Ya gots a sense of humor, FCF.

    Don’t get me wrong about this is there a standard on how a map should be laid out ?
    Is there a standard where the North should be on a map ?
    Is the North arrow always pointing up on a map ?
    Why is North always up on maps ?
    How the north ended up on top of the map
    http://america.aljazeera.com/opinions/2014/2/maps-cartographycolonialismnortheurocentricglobe.html
    Now, why have we always put north toward the tops of our maps?
    All I know is that the map makers in the Medieval period centuries did it that way, and we have been doing it the same ever since.

    American standard railroad train track width where did it come from ?
    This is False or is it.
    They claim: The U.S. standard railroad gauge derives directly from the width of Imperial Roman war chariots.
    The railroad track is about as wide as two horses’ behinds.
