The July 20, 2010 Louisiana Register contained a notice from the Office of Conservation, Louisiana Department of Natural Resources that purported to promulgate rules amending Statewide Order 29-B to add a new Chapter 8 on procedures for evaluation and remediation of groundwater at E&P sites. Conservation’s Web site on July 20, 2010 contained a “final” version of the SERP Manual that was part of the proposed rules.  In a memorandum dated July 20, 2010 sent to interested parties, the Commissioner of Conservation said the July 20 notice on these proposed rules had been “unintentionally and incorrectly published” in the Louisiana Register as a final rule.  The memorandum states that Conservation does not consider the proposed rules “to be final or in effect at this time.”  Look for future information on these proposed rules.
