Title: Advisory from the Office of Conservation
Source: Assumption Parish Police Jury
Date: April 1, 2013

4:05p ET

The Office of Conservation, in consultation with Assumption Parish Incident Command, is advising the public that the Oxy 3/sinkhole monitoring alert status has been raised to Code 2 – requiring all work directly in and over the sinkhole to cease until further notice. Seismic monitoring has detected elevated subsurface activity in the area around the sinkhole and Oxy 3 area indicative of fluid and gas movement below the sinkhole and water movement has been observed at the sinkhole surface. The seismic activity is limited to the Oxy 3/sinkhole area, showing no indication of impact to the Oxy 1 area. Monitoring is constantly ongoing in the area and Conservation will continue to advise the public of significant changes in subsurface conditions

      not enough people are even paying attention to the sinkhole for this to be a distraction. Stop with the conspiracy nonsense, there is plenty of "realness" to sink your teeth into these days. No need for hypotheticals anymore.

          No distraction, IMHO. Multiple ongoing disasters, new disasters on many fronts. And this is one of the only places to get sound reporting on it.

          If we're distracted, it's because there are too many serious, ongoing situations which demand our attention. Sometimes it's difficult to know which battle to join. As it is said, "choose your battles wisely."

          Let's please not waste time and bandwidth criticiizing one another here. Unless it's truly constructive criticism, and pure "argument" from the standpoint of having a critical thinking session.

          If you feel the need to get involved in personal tete a tete, get one another's e-mail or Twitter accounts, and please take it off-list. Keep private arguments private, please.

      All we can do is watch, and per NASA, 'pray'.

    The sinkhole happened because Texas Brine got paid good money to dump fracking sludge from Arkansas drilling sites into the abandoned Oxy3 salt mine under permit from the DNR. There is a paper trail that can prove that, and the geological data and chemical analysis supports it.

    I see no need to embellish the facts as they stand.

      You keep banging your busted drum about fracking sludge and all you do is make noise.
      "There is a paper trail that can prove that, and the geological data and chemical analysis supports it."
      Never any documentation–
      If you truly had any information you would share with the people of Bayou Corne– It would help them with the buy outs, help them get full value. OR don't you care about them??

          Do not understand you– are you defending dosdos total disregard for the suffering of the people in Bayou Corne?
          If so say so. If not then you need to show you have compassion for the residents of Bayou Corne by speaking up and tell dosdos it is not the way to treat other people.

          But plains and simple if dosdos keeps claiming to have information
          -"There is a paper trail that can prove that, and the geological data and chemical analysis supports it." —
          –that he does not produce to help others leaves only two conclusion either he does not care for other people or he can not tell the truth.

          And for what it is worth I have only one ID -have no problem standing alone — no need for phony IDs to back me up as some cowards do– as some cowards accuse others of having.

            @ Thad- Oh, Richard, DO just go away, please. Why DO you visit here? We all upset you so. I know, someone will reprimand me, saying that we all have a contribution to make here; but you are a tiresome bore. I suspect this is a form of mental masturbation for you; the insults scratching an itch that porn just can't reach for you. Why do I believe Dosdos? Maybe it's because I see no gain to be made for him; maybe it's because I have an elderly relative in the industry in Tennessee who stated, "Oh, yeah, we were sending our radioactive trash to those salt domes 20 years ago. But it'll be fine, those folks just need to move."He is very old and ignorant. Now, if YOU care about those people (as you say you do), perhaps you might start paying attention when documentation is provided. But you DON'T- you just vanish from the conversation, always. If your derogatory insults put me so firmly in mind of "someone" else, well, paint my belly yellow. People come here for education, information, comraderie, and comfort. I find you provide none of these elements. Quite the opposite, in fact.

                    Thad, why not verify the material being presented before you attack? Why does there always have to be one or two ppl in every forum community that requires other members to cite every darn source or be feared of someone calling them out for lacking credibility, or more insulating, insinuating they have an agenda? This behavior is the most disliked on any forum, and it gets very old. If someone is wrong in their research, you should find information that points out the inaccuracies.

                    Why don't YOU provide documentation showing otherwise?
                    Why don't you do the research rather than making everyone else pull it up for you? The internet is right there… Ctrl+T opens a new tab.

                    It wouldn't do any good for anyone here to provide "you" with anything Thad Daly aka Richard. People have provided you names for sources of documentation. Each and every time you claim the information is inaccurate.

                    I agree with Lickerface… "Why don't YOU provide documentation showing otherwise?

                    I'd begin with the documentation "copies of actual permits/records" being provided by Freedomrox & Louisiana Sinkhole Bugle.

                    Do I expect that you will? Absolutely not because like many other people commenting here I realize your nothing more than a troll. Who has baffled groups like the Bayou Corne Sinkhole on facebook w/nothing more than bull_ _ _ _!

It feels like you were sent here by a company to insult our members' intelligence in order to make us appear like we are babbling unwarranted filler. There is a life outside this community where your expertise may be better served. I would assume most of us are hard working proprietors looking to Enenews for the a wide spectrum of observations and research that we do not have the time to do on our own. The system works. I have appreciated some of your technical posts in the past months but not the personal attacks or trolling bits. You have a value here, but some seems insulating.

BK got so sick of it he wrote about it in his blog on Newsvine. He put up proof to show what Thad's game was, and did a very good job of it.

                      This is verifiable, just search for "BKLIMNewsvine" & "Thad Daly" there's a page full.

            Sorry Thad, but your response is trolling. Nothing dosdos stated had anything to do with his potential disregard for the Bayou Corne residents. In fact, your response sidestepped the topic of analysis and paper trails and instead jumped to the conclusion that dosdos somehow might not care about the victims in the area?!? I'm calling you out as a troll and do not see you as a credible source. I'm absolutely stunned at your response after believing you were an expert in the field. Attacking someone's observations by throwing in the notion they lack compassion for those being affected is not going to gain you credibility or respect. It makes it appear as if you have nothing to contribute further to that topic and instead derail the issue with emotion in an attempt to get a rise. Everything I read from you now looks like "troll".

                I know this game… nothing we present to you will satisfy your criteria for being credible. "Factual" sources depend on one's reality. Some members here have been providing credible information without bias, and for quite some time. There's a point when certain regulars don't have to repeatedly cite whatever source they're obtaining their "facts" or observations, because there's a certain level of trust gained by following their proof over the years. Fact checking is supposed to be done on our end; that's a given. Many of the presented comments here are either common knowledge (no proof necessary) or they're simply inferences made by intelligent individuals whom again… have gained our trust. This isn't really a debate kinda place. I'm sure this answer won't appease you, but we all come here to collaborate different sources of info, much which is significant – people here have collectively helped connect the dots more than any "credible" "news source" (which I have personal experience knowing they lie) to help form conclusions. We do use the scientific method here. Have you followed the connections we've all made by feeding off eachother's contributions? There are some very powerful sources of firsthand info here too. I know this for fact.

    Thad… There you go again…winning friends and influencing enemies. :-)

    You know I'm not mad at you though because I respect everyone's right to have an opinion even if a poster is not quite able to encourage someone to go to hell and have them enjoy the trip. Not speaking of you specifically now… just generalizing from the one million threads I have read in the past quarter century on the Internet. Pixels of light make words on a screen and they carry no auditory or body clues to make the viewpoint easier to discern.

    In my opinion if there was a rogue paper trail of illegal deposits at a lot of the 500,000 toxic dump sites in America then probably somebody would have already murdered the bookkeepers.

    Anecdotal evidence as a whole can be powerful and convincing. Old truck drivers have little to lose and can spill a lot of dumping secrets. My brother-in-law who is your age shared more details this past weekend about his fracking run to Pennsyvannia years ago and how they confiscated his truck trailer because some barrels leaked and contaminated the new box trailer. His recollections of that private dump are more convincing due to the fact his wife was traveling with him at the time and she is younger than me and recalls the same details exactly.

    Right now the state has ordered TxBrn to make buy-outs. Right now appraisals are being made.
    Dosdos claims to have knowledge of negligence by both TxBrn and state that could widen the area included in buy out, help those with their property evaluation or even the decision to accept the buy out. Provable negligence has a way of bringing the culprit to heel.
    I ask that dosdos share documentation to back the claims – not for self but for the people of Bayou Corne the victims–
    And from the lot of you, not one single word of support for the people of Bayou Corne.
    Go back and read your posts.
    Your sole response instead is to attack me, forgetting the victims. You call me troll, you call me shill- I have been called worse by better than any of you. But what I do see that you to protect one of your own it is more important than helping the people of Bayou Corne there is only one name

      I'll go with you on this one, Thad.

      I have no idea what dosdos's agenda could be by his/her claims. I don't even care about documentation so much as a reasonable argument why there should be any that nobody else has ever discovered. Search engines are not the source of all truth. The only things I have found are chlor-alkali sludge re-injection back into caverns in the dome.

      dosdos: If they did dump fracking waste in Oxy #3 and you know this to be true (or even probable), then you're sitting on information that affects the health of Bayou Corne residents and the remediation slaves working around the sinkhole.

      You have every right to toy with hints of that information here and troll everyone – you're not obligated by law or anything to post your secrets on ENENews or explain anything. I think the most you offered was 'Wait and see'. Maybe you're just hoping someone else here will do your research *for* you backing your claim.

      What ticks me off is that you smirk from the sidelines at readers, yet you're pretty much playing the same immoral tricks as Texas Brine and TEPCO: withholding information (or pretending as much) that people may want to consider as it affects their health and homes.

    Will this have an effect on the Madrid Fault Line? I don't know, and I hope it doesn't.

    How large will this get? I don't think anyone knows for sure.

    From what I have read and believe:
    It's hurting the environment.
    It hasn't gotten any better.
    People are breathing this in.
    Common sense tells me, the drinking water by now should be contaminated.
    The area is not stable

    It's a unique beautiful place and I can understand why people don't want to leave. No one ever wants to leave their home.

    I don't believe your home/area is safe, at least for now.
    Hopefully, things will change for the better.

    I understand leaving is hard, and home will always be in your heart. However, wherever you decide to go there is beauty all around, you just have to open your eyes and appreciate it.

    If you are not healthy, you won't be able to totally enjoy any place.

    Put your safety first, please get out.

    Thad, your statement that only water can dissolve salt shows your ignorance in chemistry. I suggest that you study the difference between polar and non-polar compounds. Salt is polar and can be dissolved by any polar compound in liquid form. This includes acetone, hydrogen fluoride, ammonia, sodium hydroxide, and plenty others that are found in fracking fluids, all of which were detected in the air in abundance during the early days of the sinkhole.

    Texas Brine worked the fracking fields of Arkansas, supplying brine to many of the fracking wells. In most places, the very toxic fracking sludge that comes out of the wells is simply dumped into a shallow well, where it often affects the water table. Arkansas made this practice illegal, forcing drillers to take the sludge out of state. Texas Brine had empty trucks heading back to the salt domes for more brine, so they found it quite profitable to haul the sludge from Arkansas back to the dome and dump it in the dead salt mines. This can be verified. The permit by DNR to Texas Brine to dump drilling by-products, along with natural radioactive compounds be verified.

      Of the four you mention only two are listed, one ammonia as a liquid which is not it's natural state and acetone which is so low as to be ridiculous to include

      Solubility of NaCl in various solvents
      (g NaCl / 1 kg of solvent at 25 °C)[3]

      H2O 360
      Formamide 94
      Glycerin 83
      Propylene glycol 71
      Formic acid 52
      Liquid ammonia 30.2
      Methanol 14
      Ethanol 0.65
      1-Propanol 0.124
      Sulfolane 0.05
      1-Butanol 0.05
      2-Propanol 0.03
      1-Pentanol 0.018
      Acetonitrile 0.003
      Acetone 0.00042

      You talk a good story but still can not present documentation

      As of 18 March 2011 Arkansas was still using injection wells to dispose of fracking waste

        There are usually around 70 toxic chemicals in fracking sludge. Formaldehide and propylene glycol are usually among them, and they were also detected in high quantity at the formation of the sinkhole. What, I have to deliver a list without any truncating to satisfy your ego?

        The dumps took place in August through October of 2011. It's on the records.

        As for documentation, look at Texas Brine's tax filings. Look at DNR records for permits on the dome. It's there and not hidden because it's all legal.

        Texas Brine also dumped BP oil containing corexit into the mine. Do your own homework.

          When?? Crude did not start arriving on the coast until the first of June 2010 then in Sept TxBrn started working the cavern- so that gives you a very narrow window of three months that you can't document any receiving of BP crude–

These problems with the cavern led to the cavern being plugged in June 2011.

    The problem is that Texas Brine did this legally under federal law governing fracking and the environment. It was transported across state lines, so state law is nullified, except for the stipulations that the DNR placed on the dumping. Hence, proving what Texas Brine did is of no consequence in a court of law, because what they did is legal and can not be held liable. The only stipulation that Texas Brine must legally honor is the agreement with DNR. And they are begrudgingly doing that.

    To claim I have no compassion for the residents near the sinkhole is totally inaccurate. I feel very strongly. However, other than urging people to stand up to the federal government on fracking laws, to get them to change these laws, there's not much that I can do to help them or any other of the many thousands of victims of fracking incidents. Fracking is very big money right now, and that a lot of that money is going into campaign funds to insure that the federal laws don't change.

    Thad, you need to 1) find some education into the situation, and 2) chill out. Oh, and stop making assumptions that just aren't anywhere close to reality.

    You bring up BKLim- why not bring all of his articles up??
    BKLim- to stood up to him, for him to put so much effort trying to discredit me I consider a high compliment. The article you allude to– he deleted and blocked me from any comment
    For those not wanting tunnel vision I suggest that read his other articles on newsvine. Notice the number of times he deletes then block-me. Typical same as on LSB if you can't refute then delete and block
    BP drld three wells, 2 secret- one still flowing.
    Caused the blow-out to happen on purpose to de-populate the GoM Used nuke device to kill well,
    DWH was struck by a 'blue beam' weapon to destroy helipad and kill crew
    And more

    16 Penny, yes I have read Freedomrox article, although I can admit much of it is over my head. I try my best to comprehend and I thank God for people like BK Lim who stop in on my facebook page posting graphs and helping me learn to comprehend the rest of it.

    Thad, Your a waste of time! I do however appreciate the fact that you continue to make a complete ass of yourself by telling people to refer to LADNR for information.

    If "We The People" could trust/depend on the regulating government agencies, the industry doing the drilling/storing, and mainstream media none of us would be here reading/saying a word.

    It is purely from experience that "We The People" have learned to "research and share" information for ourselves in order to "Get To The Truth".

    Expecting the industry, gov officials, or mainstream media to deliver us the news/information we need know is like signing onto an Adjustable Rate Mortgage with a 27% interest rate…. IT JUST ISN'T GOING TO HAPPEN!

    So Give It Up Already, you've beaten the skin off that dead horse!

    GuerreraZorra as you said, "we the people" need to trust each others and not the government so darn much! All of us need to stick together in these times! Like you said, you can forget government officials and mainstream media to tell the truth!

    Thad was addressing dosdos. Then the swarm came in, and banded together against Thad. THAT is trolling. DO YOU PEOPLE NOT KNOW HOW TO CONVERSE WITHOUT ALL THE NAME CALLING AND INSULTS???

    I honestly don't think you do. You people really need to take a hard long look at yourselves

    Would you please just disappear and go somewhere else? You are wasting our time and energy making personal attacks here
    Lickerface I just reported your comment. Sorry I meant it for Thad
    -stop the personal attacks. I'm reporting some of your comments Thad You sound like a whiney child

    AND THE PRIZE POSTS GOES TO MICHELLEMAMARN..because it's just funny, and jusitfies Thads use of the word hypocrite.

      rainbeaudais, did I ever say anything to you? Why do you have a problem with my asking people to take their arguments off-list? When it gets to the point of people flaming week after week, I think I'm perfectly justified in asking them to stop, and in notifying Admin.

      Apparently you haven't been reading Thad's comments & the responses week after week, as I have.

      I'm done here & I'm going to let Admin handle it at their discretion.
