Louisiana State Representative Joe Harrison: When we had the big meeting in Pierre Part, it was brought out about the pipelines that we did have, and the potential danger of the pipelines.
One scientist from LSU indicated one pipeline, which was a 36 inch pipeline, was kinked on both sides — it was amazing to me that it did not break — and said if it would have actually broken at that time the sinkhole started, it could have taken out over 2 miles of area.
That’s a scary thought.
