9:00 a.m. Morning Update

In an effort to update residents on drilling operations, we blogged two posts yesterday afternoon stating that drilling may start as soon as yesterday evening. Per Texas Brine, drilling started at 7:35 this morning. Please be advised that these posts and updates are not conflicting… We are advising the public as we are being advised. Drilling will continue 24 hours a day unless pressure is encountered. Should pressure be met with, drilling operations will be only during daylight hours.

Today, maintenance will be taking place on the Assumption Parish Police Jury’s webpage dedicated to this incident. If you are attempting to retrieve information from the site and its inaccessible, please email erinwatson@assumptionla.com regarding the specific data you’re looking for and it will be forwarded to you.
