BAYOU CORNE, LA (WAFB) -

Wednesday marks a grim anniversary for many people in Assumption Parish who are still trying to return to some type of normalcy.

It’s been four years since the Bayou Corne sinkhole opened up.

Evacuations quickly followed and the population in Bayou Corne was cut drastically. Texas Brine said the cost of responding has totaled more than $200 million.

The company added the sinkhole does not pose a threat to public safety, but crews continue to test the air quality and the water.

This environmental disaster is still affecting the community.

At 6:40 a.m., Assumption Parish OEP John Boudreaux and documentary director Victoria Greene will be in the studio to talk about what has happened and what's next.
