It has been
reported to OEP that the Louisiana National Guard helicopter pilot/crew, using
infrared equipment,flew over the slurry/sinkhole site last night and
observed a 10-20 foot growth to the North & South.
monitored the atmosphere at the slurry site for radiation and no detectable
amount of radiation was present.
monitoring (by boat) that is being done twice daily was completed this morning
and showed no changes (meaning no dangerous levels were detected). Additional monitoring for radiation was
performed as well and no detection of radiation was discovered at the bubbling
spots in the waterways.
