8:45 a.m. Update

The resident briefing will be held on Tuesday, October 23, 2012, at 6:00 p.m. at the St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church Hall in Pierre Part. The time was inadvertently left out on yesterday’s post.

Texas Brine has advised that they continue to move hydrocarbons from the cavern. Skimming also continues at the sinkhole site. The driving of the casing for the vent well installation at their facility was scheduled to be completed on yesterday afternoon. We will provide more information as it becomes available.

We’ve received several requests for the portion of Texas Brine’s original drilling permit relative to evacuee assistance. DNR has provided this information and it can be accessed by clicking here.
