ASSUMPTION PARISH POLICE JURY
Bubbling has been noticed in the water in the Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou
areas. Parish officials have determined that this bubbling is caused by a
release of natural gas and not "swamp gas."
The origin of the gas is presently unknown. Potential causes could perhaps
be a pipeline leak or a potential leak from an adjacent storage cavern.
Presently, it has not been established that this gas is a residual gas leak
from the Gulf South incident of 2003-2004. Government officials including the
LA Department of Natural Resources, LA State Police, LA Department of
Environmental Quality, Assumption Parish Office of Homeland Security and
Emergency Preparedness, and the Assumption Parish Sheriff's Office are
continuously working with local industry to determine the origin of the leak.
The immediate task at hand is to isolate the problem so that repair and
mitigation can commence to resolve the problem.
Daily readings are being taken and recorded from all known bubbling
locations for ignition risk. At present time, no readings have suggested any
ignition risk; therefore, all waterways remain open to boat traffic. If
readings change, waterways may be closed for a period of time.
If anyone has information on bubbling locations or about a potential origin of
the gas, please contact the Assumption Parish Office of Homeland Security and
Emergency Preparedness at (985) 369-7386.
