DEQ flyover finds few environmental problems

Wednesday, 12:04 a.m.

Louisiana Department of Environmental Quality officials flew over

flooded southeastern Louisiana on Tuesday, looking for oil and chemical

spills and other environmental threats, said department spokesman Daniel


While what looked like a slight oily sheen was found around at least

one refinery in Chalmette, few other problems were spotted in the initial

fly-over, Mann said.

Officials will make a second inspection from the air today.

The environmental agency also has issued an emergency declaration

reducing regulatory requirements resulting from problems caused by Katrina

in southeastern parishes stretching from East Baton Rouge to Plaquemines

and as far west as St. Martin.
