BAYOU CORNE — A Texas Brine Co. LLC contractor will be begin distributing weekly housing assistance checks worth $875 on Friday to households affected by an evacuation order stemming from the emergence of a large sinkhole in northern Assumption Parish, company officials said Thursday.

Texas Brine of Houston hired Worley Catastrophe Response to coordinate and manage the assistance fund. The company will operate from the Sheriff’s Office substation in Pierre Part, company officials said in a news release.

Checks from the “Bayou Corne Incident Evacuee Fund” will be issued to the representative of each household affected by the evacuation order.

The representative will have to display a Louisiana driver’s license or “other reasonably acceptable photo identification confirming residence in the evacuation zone,” company officials said.

In a related development, two contractors involved in the cleanup of the sinkhole had to be rescued Thursday morning from their boat after a portion of the slurry-filled hole’s edge collapsed, parish officials said.

The sinkhole was found the morning of Aug. 3 and a mandatory evacuation order has remained in place since Friday evening for the Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou areas. Parish officials said the order affected about 150 residences.

Louisiana Department of Natural Resources officials have said they suspect a plugged and abandoned Texas Brine salt cavern may be the cause of the sinkhole and has ordered Texas Brine to drill a relief well to get a better understanding of what is happening with the cavern.

The original permit for the cavern, which had been used in the production of brine until a few years ago, requires the operator to provide assistance to residents in areas deemed to be at immediate potential risk, officials with the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness have said.

that would be 476 Feet , 640 Feet and 295 Feet across

This is a photo that was taken on yesterday of the sinkhole – we’ve provided some data so that you may better comprehend the measurements and the proximity to LA-70.
