LEAN was proud to host a meeting of the coalition last Friday, 11/15/13, in Baton Rouge at the Burden Center. A special “Thank You” goes to the experts and advocates who spoke on current environmental issues facing Louisiana including:
John M. Barry – Coastal wetland loss due to the oil and gas industry.
Anne Rolfes – Refinery accidents: a chronic and increasing problem
Mike Schaff – Texas Brine and the Bayou Corne sinkhole disaster
A. Hays Town – The Baton Rouge Aquifer and the threat of saltwater intrusion
