|3/30/2017 - The EIS is woefully inadequate in surveying critical natural environment features that will be impacted by any major highway that is ultimately chosen (hydrology, Sole Source Aquifer, Vermilion Watershed, Cypress Island Swamp Wetlands). |
|3/30/2017 - The public has made clear the number one value that we want protected is the Chicot Aquifer. The LUS waterworks north side facility is within the area of influence. The Chicot Aquifer (with recharge characteristics) is only 38 ft below the surface in the area of the railroad facility. The railyard facility has been deemed to be a "superfund" like-site. Those contaminants are now being drawn into the LUS northside water facility (although the contamination has been known for decades). Litigation calling for (1) a comprehensive study facility wide, and beyone ad necessary in order to inform the second component of the lawsuit ie (2) a comprehensive clean up and (3) have cost to all @ the responsible parties expense, not taxpayers.|
