    Once the NORM is extracted, it is flushed directly back into the ocean in the waste-stream byproduct known as produced water.

    So, even with everything ticking along according to plan, there's a steady stream of radium, thorium, etc. spilling into our fisheries?

      the plan is that upon testing, (which has not been done since 2002) when the contaminants are identified, the state would have to come up with a plan for disposal other than into the Gulf. First the testing needs to be done, so this is a big first step...especially in a state run by oil companies!
