LIVINGSTON, La. (WAFB) - Livingston Parish Council members approved a moratorium on injection wells and disposal wells at their meeting on Thursday, Oct. 13.
The temporary moratorium will last 12 months or until it is lifted.
A chemical company called ‘Air Products’ is planning to pump carbon dioxide into the ground under Lake Maurepas.
But people in lower Livingston and Ascension parishes have expressed concerns. Those worries include what the carbon dioxide would do to the drinking water, and the ecosystems around the lake, in addition to the potential long-term effects.
