Additional Mandatory Evacuation Area Reduced to Voluntary Evacuation

September 2, 2015

The area to the west of Grand Bayou along Highway 70 that was part of the Mandatory Evacuation Order from the Bayou Corne Sinkhole has been re-designated to a Voluntary Evacuation Area.  Attached is a Map of the area, which is from Grand Bayou (waterway) west to the Enlink Compressor Station Property as depicted on the map provided.

The area is believed to be depleted of any risk from gas present and continued investigations will confirm that the gas is depleted from this area before the evacuation order is removed from this area.

Attached is a map to identify the area that is now being added to the Voluntary Evacuation Area (this area will be designated as Area 2):
