We Told Ya So!

The Advocate Assumption jurors say no to sinkhole discharge into Grand Bayou, citing environmental concerns, but state officials worried about catastrophic levee failure

“. . . . Tom Killeen, DEQ Inspection Division administrator, described the implications of a catastrophic levee failure: As much as 150 million gallons of sinkhole water — possibly mixed with saltier water from the sinkhole’s depths — would rush into the swamp if a breach allowed up to 3 feet of water to flow out.

The primary bowl of the sinkhole is about 31 acres, but the series of containment levees cut through the swamps south of La. 70 contain a total of 117 acres, Texas Brine has said. . .  “

 “In the June 3 letter to DEQ, Martin, the Texas Brine vice president, raised reusing sinkhole water for salt dome mining but wrote then the company was talking with an unnamed customer about the water’s suitability.”

“Police Jury President Martin “Marty” Triche told Killeen jurors favored Texas Brine finding another method of disposing of the water, such as through a pipeline to injection wells, instead of discharging into the bayous with monitoring but no treatment.”

The more recent sinkhole photos from On Wings of Care show the area much better than graphics used by many media outlets.

Lots of fluid movement at 6 a.m. at LA-12.

Heads up, residents who were in court over Texas Brine –
The Advocate[East Baton Rouge]Fired Baton Rouge Parish Attorney Mary Roper issued misdemeanor summons

“The investigators discovered three email accounts belonging to attorneys for the Parish Attorney’s Office that were illegally accessed more than 40 times, he said. Detectives determined the illegal access originated from a home IP address belonging to Roper.

Investigators also uncovered evidence indicating use of Roper’s personal computer to illegally access the Parish Attorney’s Office email system through a proxy service designed to mask the user’s actions and location, Manale said.”

Big solar storm today – The Watchers

Enemy of Standard Oil and still vilified, Huey Long died 80 years ago.

“Under the principle of the separation of church and state it is not legal to provide funding to Catholic schools. Louisiana had in Huey Long’s and still has many Catholic schools where Catholic parents preferred to send their children. Huey long came up with the simple but brilliant ploy of providing textbooks to children rather than to their schools. This enable the state government to subsidize both public and parochial education. Many people, even political opponents of Long supported this program.

Long however wanted to impose the cost of the textbook program upon the petroleum companies like Standard Oil. This measure was not supported by many in the state legislature.”

They were never investigated for ordering his assassination but they had the means, the motive and the opportunity to do the deed.  Today reports on (enemy of oil companies) Hugo Chavez with the same spirit as the dictator description given to (enemy of oil companies) Long.

Mining Awareness blog has more on populist enemy-of-Standard-Oil, Huey Long.

Money needed to drill scavenger wells for saltwater information

Big Fluid Movement Before Midnight

Heli_ANI

fluid Lake FUBAR sloshing overnight!

It started late Thursday before midnight and went til after 1 a.m. . But it didn’t slosh at all the locations (!). confused

I sloshed a lot at LA12, 14, 18 and 19. It sloshed a lot at LA10-03, at the bottom but not the mid borehole at 10-02. 10-01 is still broken. LA17-02, the upper borehole sloshed a lot but the bottom one at 17-01 didn’t.

Here’s how it looked:

The AdvocateFirm blames Occidental Petroleum for creating 31-acre sinkhole

[snip] . . . . State scientists and a special panel of worldwide experts have said for more than two years that Texas Brine mined a salt dome cavern too close to the dome’s outer, supporting wall of salt. A breach opened up in that salt wall and allowed surrounding rock to flood into the massive underground cavity carved from the salt deposit, creating the sinkhole in the cypress swamp near Bayou Corne.

Texas Brine now says an oil well drilled in 1986 near that cavern and operated at the time under Occidental Petroleum’s ultimate say was mismanaged and triggered the cavern wall break that sparked the sinkhole.

“Oxy Petroleum’s alleged technical expertise did not deliver superior results,” the suits say, borrowing from some of Occidental Petroleum’s business rhetoric.

“Instead, it delivered the Bayou Corne sinkhole.”

Tuesday News & Lots on DOW

THURSDAY UPDATE:

fluid  Lots and lots of Fluid movement 6:30 a.m. – 7:30 a.m.! LA12 shows it.

TUESDAY

Strange Sounds – Extreme winds blow off train from elevated tracks in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana

The Advocate – New safety rules since massive sinkhole prevent Texas Brine from expanding salt cavern operation; company files suit against Dow DOW1

Some more on DOW –

   DOW links sent by a reader –  “…to point out the connection to Michigan politics (again).  Michigan’s AG Bill Schuette, (who’s from Midland and his dad was being groomed to be Dow’s CEO before he died at a young age) is married to Cynthia Grebe whose father was the famous or infamous genius at Dow for creating Styrofoam and Saran Wrap and nuclear submarines and is in the Plastic Hall of Fame as well as being some huge Creationist. Bill Schuette has huge political aspirations. Chemical Bank in Michigan began with Dow and their hometown still remains Midland. Chemical Bank used to be number 2 as far as assets in Michigan however they are in the process of purchasing more banks in lower MI which will then make them número uno.”

” . . . In the book “we almost lost Detroit” regarding the Fermi accident in
1966 is that not only was the father (John Grebe) of our AG’s wife the inventor of Styrofoam and Saran Wrap and a rabid Creationist, but also head of Dow’s Nuclear Research Department. He had at least two patents for nuclear rockets.”

“. . . John Grebe was on a ship watching the atomic bomb dropping at Bikini Atoll. He was huge in the field of nuclear stuff. Also, just learned our [Mich.] governor, Rick Snyder is going to be making a run for the Presidency! A puppet of Dow.”
