Dear Texas Brine, Where are the Status Reports on Your Collapsed Salt Dome in Napoleonville?

Why is all the live monitoring at Lake FUBAR being withheld from the public?

You haven’t put out a “response” since January.

There is live GPS data on all kinds of coordinates and land levels all over Assumption Parish. This data is supposed to public. The helicorders are supposed to be working and half of them are dead or giving out mish-mash. No one has even tended to them (in months!) to even temporarily fix them. The CORS911 system (with LSU help) is supposed to keep giving live GPS data. Acknowledging the big public hazard from Lake FUBAR they said “the CORS911 sentinels will continue to provide the real-time hazard-monitoring solutions needed to support this response for as long as necessary.”

Everything in the caverns is falling to pieces and self-generating quakes are large and frequent so, yeah, CORS911 data is still necessary.

Where’s the info from Sandia Labs, UC Berkeley, JPL, USGS and all the big-shots who we know are watching Lake FUBAR.

Where’s the satellite imagery? Where’s the fly-over photos? Where are still photos?

Keith M. sent this document in
CORS911: Real-Time Subsidence Monitoring of the Napoleonville Salt Dome Sinkhole Using GPS (July 2013)

It is now on the Documents page.
Here’s a Q & A on the 2013 CORS report –

But it is from 2013. Then they ran out of money (LSU).

They are supposed to be keeping the CORS911 thing going….

“In May 2013 a commission of scientists, response agents, and stakeholders concluded that subsidence monitoring programs were essential for ensuring public safety [LADNR, 2013b]. The CORS911 system, in coordination with the other monitoring platforms, is a key resource for these objectives. After broader attention to the sinkhole wanes, the CORS911 sentinels will continue to provide the real-time hazard-monitoring solutions needed to support this response for as long as necessary.



In the comments to the Creep Zone post (scroll down) I put up related docs found. Here they are:

This office has more regional papers too …

Gas-charged fluids creating seismicity associated with a Louisiana sinkhole (2014)

“Natural earthquakes and nuclear explosions produce seismic waves that register on seismic monitoring networks around the globe, allowing the scientific community to pinpoint the location of the events. In order to distinguish seismic waves produced by a variety of activities – from traffic to mining to explosions – scientists study the seismic waves generated by as many types of events as possible. ”

    • Look for yourself how big that sinkhole has getting a lot of that old road around the sinkhole is under water now.

      This is a video of the Bayou Corne sinkhole and community, taken by on 2015/07/27.

      • and look how out-of-the-way these ‘investigators’ like the Blue Ribbons go to put out of date maps into their reports.
        We want to know the current size of Lake FUBAR and it is like pulling teeth.

    • That sinkhole water i wonder how much sulfuric acid is in that water ?

      I did a search 2015 Napoleonville Salt Dome Subsidence Report
      Here is one of many web sites that came up.

      Sept. 9, 2015; 9:06 p.m. Assumption jurors say no to sinkhole discharge into Grand Bayou, citing environmental concerns, but state officials worried about catastrophic levee failure
      John Boudreaux, director of the Assumption Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness, told jurors Wednesday that he spoke with officials at Occidental Chemical Corp., one of Texas Brine’s primary brine customers. Oxy officials told him the water contains bacteria known to corrode piping and other metal equipment.

    • The graphic is REAL!
      I changed the upper left corner with the name and date to make it a little bigger.
      I added the orange writing at the top and orange wavey stripe at the bottom.
      I added the “Happy Halloween” text OVER the copy of the chart.
