“The area to the west of Grand Bayou along Highway 70 that was part of the Mandatory Evacuation Order from the Bayou Corne Sinkhole has been re-designated to a Voluntary Evacuation Area. Attached is a Map of the area, which is from Grand Bayou (waterway) west to the Enlink Compressor Station Property as depicted on the map provided.”
nasty, nasty NORM . . . .

The Felony charges are against a “brine” injection well operator in North Dakota. But, meanwhile, in Louisiana, the Texas Brine-Bayou Corne Sinkhole Disaster is still going, three years on,
and still showing the dangerous stupidity of putting waste water, petroleum, and especially radioactive waste in salt. Salt “caverns” are imploding. The US and Germany refuse to look the facts in the face and still pretend salt storage of radioactive waste is ok. There is also a higher risk with anything underground, inaccessible. One day WIPP nuclear waste facility may look like Bayou Corne. WIPP is more arid but there’s still water and still problems of internal collapse since the beginning.

Paying lip service to coastal restoration
Virtually everyone in Louisiana supports serious efforts to save our coast – whatever ‘saving’ means – and it clearly means less and less every day. Support for acting to sustain at least portions of America’s Delta is 100 miles wide – but only inches thick.
Our next governor could very well oversee the point at which the public despairs of ever seeing meaningful restoration projects and begins to ridicule further pie in the sky planning goals. Meanwhile however, rose colored calls to save the coast continue ad nauseum.
As a case in point, on August 13 The Advocate published a guest column on the need to act before it’s too late, by Steve Cochran, with the Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and Kimberly Reyher with the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL). This column is rife with slogans but bereft of substance.
The authors advocate what has already been more or less agreed to – memorializing the tenth anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita by investing Louisiana’s ~$6 Billion coastal windfall from fines against BP to implement coastal restoration projects listed in the state’s Coastal Master Plan. What a novel idea.
This vapid opinion piece dodges or glosses over three ‘M’ factors, each a potential deal breaker in terms of successful coastal restoration: money, mud, and muscle (political willpower). Restoration will never be achieved without resolving each issue. . . . (more)

2015 Gulf of Mexico dead zone ‘above average’
“Scientists have found this year’s Gulf of Mexico dead zone, an area of low to no oxygen that can kill fish and marine life, is, at 16 767 square km (6 474 square miles), above average in size and larger than forecast by NOAA in June. The larger than expected forecast was caused by heavy June rains throughout the Mississippi River watershed, NOAA reports.”
