SATURDAY UPDATE  (1-23)

Walter noticed ALL the helicorders all over (not just Louisiana) are goin’ nuts.

THEY ARE!
Check this worldwide helicorder map and check ANY location now and compare to Friday or Thursday. You will see the familiar Mexico quake on the Americas’ helis. And then everything goes batsh-t crazy today!

We did some screen grabs from the world monitoring site.

Some Drinking Water News –

It’s not just Flint that’s poisoned mentions New Orleans

The drinking water in St. Joseph (Tensas Parish) is in very bad shape. There is awful brown water coming out of the taps. See photos here: http://www.saintalbansepiscopal.org/2016/01/st-joseph-water.html

The city was appropriated $6m to fix its water system. But the town failed to provide an audit to the state government, which has blocked the funding from reaching the town.  http://www.hannapub.com/franklinsun/st-joseph-fails-to-hand-over-financials/article_02eb5d80-b5cb-11e3-862c-001a4bcf6878.html  This failure of leadership is hurting the community. The people need strong leadership to get the funding to fix the problem. Further, the city needs state and federal intervention.

Please sign the petition to get federal intervention here, and please forward this along to your members: http://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petition/clean-drinking-water-st-joseph-louisiana

NOTE: On the Yellowstone blog, YS watcher, Mary Greeley says the USGS is turning the helicorders there on teeny tiny setting. – F.C.

From Save Lake Peigneur

Lake Peigneur Bubbling Aug 21 2014

Bubbling continues at Lake Peigneur. The DNR & AGL Resources were notified of some unfortunate changes in the bubbling phenomena. We have had a few bubbling events over the summer however, yesterday’s event indicated significant changes. About Lake Peigneur
Most of the previous bubbling events ran in linear east/west movement.

Yesterday the bubbling ran north/south and irregular lines. After discussion with the AGL contact the company will also monitor activities in our process to determine the cause of the bubbling.

From Real Coastal Warriors : Gulf oyster harvest has nose-dived since BP spill

“…Gulf Coast oyster harvests have declined dramatically in the four years since a BP PLC oil well blew wild in the nation’s worst offshore oil disaster. Even after a modest rebound last year, thousands of acres of oyster beds where oil from the well washed ashore are producing less than a third of their pre-spill harvest.”

The helicorders at Lake FUBAR were pretty quiet until noon then they started up and then sputtered. LA18 shows it.

The AdvocateJudge tells sinkhole lawyers to settle taxpayers’ claims

The state district judge presiding over year-old lawsuits seeking reimbursement of state and parish costs from the Bayou Corne-area sinkhole urged Texas Brine Co. and its insurers Monday to turn their attention away from internal battles over coverage and focus on settling the primary legal claims seeking to recover taxpayer dollars.

Judge Guy Holdridge, of the 23rd Judicial District, told a courtroom of more than two dozen lawyers from Texas Brine Co., its insurers, and state and Assumption Parish government that he has dealt with similar cases in the past involving multiple insurers and millions of dollars in claims and that the sheriff’s and Police Jury’s claims, in particular, are worth just several hundred thousand dollars each.

“My frustration is why are we working and kneading me up as a judge over these small claims, and I’m having to deal with 1,000 New Orleans lawyers. I don’t know why we are doing this,” Holdridge said at the Assumption Parish Courthouse in Napoleonville. . . .


There has been fewer posts here than usual because news from Bayou Corne has slowed to a trickle …
chickenscratch

There’s been almost no updates posted lately from DNR.

 

DEQ has a new situation update Aug. 3 but they don’t report any stats. They just say everything’s fine. They have a water quality report for 7-29. They have a July air sample report.

The  Texas Brine Action Plan was pretty recent, Aug. 3. Oxy has one too for Aug. 3. So does KDS Promix, DOW, Arcadian GasChevron and Crosstex. Chevron is reducing inventory and slowing down. They don’t say it is due to instability but we doubt it is a reduction to greed that prompts them! Arcadian is idle too.

Texas Brine’s Action Plan uses an incredibly old photo of Lake FUBAR. We wonder how they can plan anything without a current picture or map.

The last Texas Brine drilling report was for 2012 just after the collapse. They say they closed Oxy 3 with a master valve so maybe they didn’t do any more drilling and that was the last report.

Lake Fubar Grumbles Overnight + Tues. Yellowstone News

They turned off the seismic monitors at Yellowstone. We have other updates too on the Yellowstone news page.

Fluid Movement at 1 a.m. – shown well on LA12 but on most monitors. It calmed down. Then . . .

HUGE Fluid Movement after 3 p.m. Saturday that lasted over 2 hours! It was on most of the monitors but not all of them. Oddly, it was on the bottom borehole only at LA10 and on the upper borehole only at LA17. It showed a lot at LA12, 18 and 19.

LOTS of sudden fluid movement at Lake FUBAR. It is shown well at LA10-03 (deepest borehole). It looks the same on the monitor as the chart shown above.

Late at night LA12 helicorder wouldn’t show and this error message came up. folkworm_error
