A permit for a proposed wastewater injection well in north St. Landry Parish has been denied.

Eagle Oil LLC, was looking to install a well to dispose of fracking waste from oil and natural gas drilling. The Advocate is reporting The Louisiana Department of Natural Resources Office of Conservation denied the permit because Eagle Oil’s responses on comments and questions from the public regarding truck routes were incomplete. Conservation Commissioner Richard Ieyoub also cited a lack of “evaluation and consideration from all potential routes to the site” in the order.

DNR found that the permit indicated that there was at least one other route that trucks transporting waste could take, which included Highways 10 or 71 turning onto Highway 182. These routes were not evaluated and no impact analysis was provided, so they denied the permit, according to the Advocate.
