Acadian Gas has reported that a check valve on their pipeline has opened and is currently releasing gas into the atmosphere. The loud noise emitting from this check valve can be heard throughout the Bayou Corne community. Pipeline workers are on site and currently working to isolate the pipeline to reset the valve.
No effects or dangers are posed to the community and/or the highway because of this situation. Assumption OEP is onsite monitoring the situation and we will share updates as they become available.
