Assumption Parish’ hungry sinkhole celebrated its first birthday on August 3 2013, 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.

  1. The newest tactic to address the sinkhole problem with methane bubbling up is some giant sucking contraption. No kidding. It has pictures in the newest Parish blog announcement. The link is on the Bugle.
