8:47 a.m. Morning Update

An environmental clean-up contractor is on site today to move forward in cleaning the diesel at the sinkhole/slurry site. DEQ will be monitoring the clean-up efforts.

The weather will not allow OEP Director John Boudreaux to fly over the site this morning; however, the Louisiana National Guard continues to fly over the sinkhole each night using their infrared equipment to track changes to the size and shape of it. The public will be made aware should any changes be observed.

State agencies have moved in and set up their mobile command centers here in Bayou Corne.  Lots of activity on-site… check back for updates.
