Gary Hecox, a Shaw Environmental and Infrastructure Inc. geologist working on the issue for the State of Louisiana:
One thing that I know Dr. Nunn at LSU talked about, it was in the paper, I read the papers, I watch the news every night.
The issue of the other caverns has to come in to the overall analysis. […]
We’ve got to look at all the caverns in the area folks, we can’t — we know there was concern, it’s been on the blogs, I’ve seen it on the news, people are worried about, “What about the other caverns.” We’re working on it. We’re looking at them.

Resident: I have a simple question, is Texas Brine or any other company actively mining on the west side of the [salt] dome?

Hecox: That’s something we’re looking at.
