Thurs. News, Boone Dam Snow Melt Fears < UPDATED

See next post for link to map of Lake FUBAR and helicorder link.  Everything still on active mode there.
DOWNarrowSM LA14 showed a big 2 hour long disruption just after 1 a.m. and another 2 hour long session just after 3 a.m..

This comment at Zero Hedge says they wonder what will happen to Boone Dam when all this snow melt comes down the river.

“TVA drew Boone down to below winter pool levels to take some pressure off of the sinkhole/mud geysers, so it only has to hold back something like a 145 ft. wall of water. Which is fine – until the snow pack in the mountains melts in a couple of weeks. Then you have those two rivers with fifteen miles of water in them filling up REALLY fast. The river below the Boone dam will be swollen, too. I don’t think they can just open the floodgates on Boone all the way. So Boone fills up, water migration that caused the sinkholes/mud geysers gets worse, and all of a sudden you have Boone tsunami.” . . . (more)

DNR Knows the Water is Getting Contaminated from Texas Brine’s Disaster

This 2012 DNR document shows Shaw Group (new name now) did a simulation study on migration of chloride from the Bayou Corne sinkhole into Mississippi River Alluvial Aquifer and it showed the aquifer getting contaminated.

From Shaw Group - Bayou Corne Evaluation of Chloride Migration from Bayou Corne Sinkhole in Mississippi River Alluvial Aquifer (MRAA), November 14, 2012

The study has charts showing the water levels all around Lake FUBAR and beyond.

Also we found this Nov. 2012 report from Isotech showing the amount of methane taken in their samples.

This 2012 DNR map of the area shows how much toxic crud is at risk of getting into the water should there be a big explosion or catastrophe at Lake FUBAR. See east of Lake FUBAR on the map. You can take this 2012 DNR status report and mark it all up with a red pencil.

Explosive Methane Fault Migration: Gulf to La. Salt Domes?

Louisiana’s onshore faults and fractures link to Gulf of Mexico where methane gas has been leaking since April 2010 when BP wrecked the Macondo well, MC 252. Presently, Apache Corporation is trying to stop methane that is migrating from its well. . .

. . . . Aside from gas migrating from Apache’s well in the Gulf off Louisiana’s coast, at least two regional methane gas leakage events now occur near the Gulf, at Lake Peigneur and Bayou Corne, are linked: Each is manmade due to salt dome mining, rather than solely natural events. . . . (more)

WBRZ – Emergency officials dispute sinkhole safety claim

BAYOU CORNE – Emergency responders say the Bayou Corne sinkhole poses a threat to residents despite claims by the company said to be responsible for the 2012 disaster.
Texas Brine, the Houston based company, appealed to the Louisiana Department of Natural Resources at a Jan. 28 hearing to stop issuing checks to residents coocoo  still living in the evacuation area.
. . . . A spokesperson for Texas Brine claimed the company presented expert testimony at the DNR hearing, arguing the surface area of the sinkhole has been stable for nearly a year.

Washington TimesAnalysis: La. environmental lobby gains prominent ally

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) – Environmentalists have always had a tough slog in Louisiana, where the oil and gas industry provides tens of thousands of jobs and chemical plants dot the landscape along the Mississippi River.

But the cause has picked up a high-profile sponsor in the last few years, retired Army Lt. Gen. Russel Honore, the military leader who won acclaim for restoring calm and order to New Orleans in the chaos after Hurricane Katrina nearly 10 years ago.
