BAYOU CORNE, LA (WAFB) -
Two new drilling wells are being installed near the Bayou Corne sinkhole site. SHAW has already installed three wells east and west of the site and will be putting another one on its property not far from there.
Assumption Parish Office of Emergency Preparedness officials say the wells will be used to vent off more gas.
Meanwhile, a geologist is comparing the size of the sinkhole to the sediment inside the compromised cavern to determine how much bigger the sinkhole could get over time.
"Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night wondering if they are going to give us money to relocate or what they are going to do," said Donald Gros, Bayou Corne resident.
The Department of Natural Resources Commissioner has ordered Texas Brine to present a plan and timetable to the state by November 13.
The Assumption Parish, LA sinkhole continues to grow. The ground opened up on August 3, 2012 and residents were evacuated from their homes. The sinkhole, or slurry, is consuming land and trees. Many images are from the Assumption Parish Police Jury. Click here to see the photos from August until now. More >>
