Department of Energy will conduct further environmental impact studies on Richton Project

The Department of Energy announced Thursday that it will conduct further environmental impact studies on its 10-year plan to hollow out the Richton salt dome for crude oil storage.

The announcement comes after strong public protest against the project, which many say was approved as the Coast was dealing with the ravages of Katrina, with little regard for environmental or economic consequences.


Some good news at last. Read more about it in The Sun Herald.
