General Russell Honoré helps Save Lake Peigneur

Updated:

Sometimes it takes an army to win the battle and those with the group Save Lake Peigneur are happy retired army lieutenant general Russell Honoré is on their side.

Honore` is spear heading ‘The Green Army', a group of small organizations throughout Louisiana fighting for environmental change. The group has joined those with Save Lake Peigneur in hopes to prevent a repeat of the 1980 disaster that caused a massive sink hole.

One member of the group says she is thankful the ‘Green Army' has joined her fight.  Nara Crowley with Save Lake Peigneur says Honore` speaks from his heart and is a man of his word.

Crowley goes on to say having Honore` on their side sends a big statement to Louisiana legislators. For those who are unfamiliar with Honore`, he was the man who helped bring peace to the New Orleans area after Hurricane Katrina.

One of Honore's initiatives through his ‘Green Army' will be seeking legislation to limit industrial uses of ground water.
