Texas Brine Co. has moved contractors operating on the Bayou Corne-location sinkhole in Louisiana into 3 houses the firm bought from residents who left after the failure of a company-operated salt dome cavern.
Texas Brine spokesman Sonny Cranch tells The Advocate 2 houses south of La. 70 have been occupied for 3 weeks.
A home north of La. 70 has been occupied considering that January.
The Bayou Corne neighborhood has been below a mandatory evacuation purchase considering that the sinkhole emerged Aug. 3, 2012, and flammable methane fuel was released as a end result.
Cranch explained the residences will be occupied as long as the contractors work on the 29-acre swampland hole. He mentioned housing them at the web site allows Texas Brine to save on the value of hotel reimbursements.
