Lawsuit Filed Against PPG/Axiall in Alleged Contamination Case
Posted On behalf of Simien & Simien on Jun 06, 2014 in Oil And Gas
Eulis Simien, partner at Simien & Simien, LLC, has confirmed that his firm is representing landowners who have filed a lawsuit against Axiall Corporation in the Louisiana 14th Judicial State District Court. The plaintiffs are seeking the cleanup of soil and water contamination damage to their property that has resulted in monetary damages.
Axiall acquired PPG pipelines in January 2013. The suit alleges that the damages were caused by the poorly maintained and very old PPG/Axiall pipelines which, according to the court documents filed, have widespread leakage problems and run across private properties in west Calcasieu Parish.
The pipeline originates at the Sulphur Salt Domes and runs for approximately 9 miles at points along Bayou D’Inde and then several streets including Vallage Orphange Road through the communities of Sulphur, Mossville and Westlake, Louisiana, until it turns south and enters the PPG/Axiall plant site.
