public meeting August 16th @ Murphy Building

-- Public Meeting Tuesday August 16th at 6:30pm at the Murphy Oil Building, 1615 E. Judge Perez Drive, Chalmette

The Public Meetings with Murphy Oil are scheduled for the third Tuesday of the Month. This month's meeting is expected to include information about the new air monitor on Ventura Drive in Chalmette. The meetings are open to the public.

The recent U.S. EPA consent decree with Murphy Oil requires the community air monitor, which tests for benzene, toluene, hydrogen sulfide, sulfur dioxide and other chemical releases from Murphy's Meraux Refinery. The monitor is located on Ventura Drive in Chalmette. Air testing results will post on a public website. Murphy Oil will also provide a computer at a public area, such as the local public library, for residents to access the data.
UPDATE:   Murphy Oil  air monitor website
