The La. Dept. of Natural Resources will hold a public hearing on Wed. Feb. 8th on the COASTAL USE PERMIT request for the Bayou Bridge Pipeline.

Turnout for the Jan 12, 2017 LDEQ USACE public hearing on the Bayou Bridge pipeline project was outstanding. Opposition to the pipeline greatly outnumbered supporters. Hearing testimony was at times factual, emotional, and even entertaining. Thanks all who showed up and/or who sent written comments. The news now is that there will be another public hearing on Feb 8 at 6 pm at the Assumption Parish Community Center located at 4910 LA Hwy 308, Napoleonville, LA 70390. A pre-hearing Rally will be held outside the Community Center beginning at 5pm

The Feb 8 hearing will be conducted by LDNR about a proposed Coastal Use Permit (CUP) which is required for projects in Louisiana’s coastal zone. Though the pipeline crosses eleven parishes, only two parishes that the pipeline would go through are in the coastal zone, Assumption and St. James.

Citizen public input at the public hearing and with written comments will again be very important in order to make sure there is a full discussion of relevant issues. You can see Sierra Club Delta Chapter concerns in the earlier article at: http://lasierraclub.org/node/414
