In December 2008, Michael and Thomas Allen along with other concerned members of Bayou Sorrel and Bayou Pigeon, hosted a meeting. Present at that meeting were supporting members of LEJCOC, as well as representatives from DEQ, EPA, and Dept. of Health and Hospitals(LDHH). Also there were Diane Dugas and Kathleen Aubin of Environmental Epidemiology and Toxicology section of LDHH. The citizens spoke of living in the community and having injection wells about 18 yards from their homes and the heavy river and bayou traffic. One citizen even spoke of how the grass was no longer green and the animals were no longer good to hunt or eat. This implicated that the citizens of Bayou Sorrel's whole way of life was being interrupted and they were determined to do something about it.
