9:55 a.m. Helicopter Survey Today

The Office of Conservation and Assumption Parish Incident Command are advising the public that Fugro is flying its helicopter-borne EM survey equipment this morning, beginning with a test pass to make sure the area is clear of navigation hazards and conduct equipment calibration. That test will be followed by the EM survey flight, intended to provide information on shallow subsurface in the Bayou Corne area. The survey will be done at relatively low altitudes, but no lower than 500 feet, through mid to late afternoon. If the weather remains clear, the survey will finish today.
