BAYOU CORNE, LA (WAFB) -
Sunday will mark the exact six
month date of the sinkhole in Bayou Corne.
On Wednesday, Texas Brine made a
public presentation hoping to assure affected residents the company is doing
everything it can to correct the problem and get people back in their homes.
"We're trying to put together a
picture from before and after. We really don't know what right now, looks like
and until we do, we're kind of all guessing," said seismographer Kevin Hill.
The plan is still not
sitting well with many affected residents who believe there is more to the
"You kind of have to understand
our skepticism here."
"The ground moves and something
happens. Who's buying the house? What are they paying?"
Texas Brine Director of
Operations Bruce Martin says he understands residents' frustrations but adds
his company is doing everything it can to get people back to normal.
"I'm bringing in a lot of new
resources every day to move along on this response effort. Our goal is to get
this thing behind us and get the people of Bayou Corne back in their house,"
That is not good enough for Henry
Welch who says he will never feel safe in his home again and would rather have
the company just buy him out.
"I moved there to retire and to
be able to fish and hunt and do the things normal retirees do and be lazy but
I'd rather go on down the road," said Welch.
According to Texas Brine the company hopes to have dirt
containment berms in place around the sinkhole within two to three weeks.
