Findings on IMTT/ Shell and the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality’s air sampling in St. Rose
- It is hard to get the results of the sampling that they conducted The Louisiana Bucket Brigade had to file a public records request with the Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality (LDEQ) to get this information. What ordinary person knows how to do that? The information that was provided was only for nine days of sampling, from June 11th – 20th.
- Two types of sampling were conducted
a. Grab samples (samples that grab air for a few minutes): These were taken by both Shell / IMTT and LDEQ from June 11th to June 19th. Out of 37 samples taken, 30 were taken on site at Shell / IMTT and seven were taken in the neighborhood.
