Sinkhole Swallows Work Pad, More Trees


Assumption Parish’ hungry sinkhole celebrated its first burpday on August 3, and the one-year-old’s appetite continues to grow. The last slough took place on the northern side of the sinker, and it swallowed about 75 percent of the work pad, with some trees for a side. The total area of the meal was approximately 50 ft. by 75 ft.

 

The sinkhole was caused when an underground salt dome, owned by Texas Brine, LLC, collapsed. The company has been involved with recovery work at the site. The slurry area in Bayou Corne has grown from five to over 24 acres.

 

You can see the video of the most recent damages here, and a map of the north side below.
