Locations - Grand Bayou Operations
Grand Bayou is a part of Louisiana Operations, located approximately 30 miles from the integrated manufacturing site in Plaquemine. Grand Bayou sits on over 880 acres of property in Assumption Parish, and the site is home to some of the most beautiful wildlife in the area.
Site operations began in 1957. At Grand Bayou, Dow mines underground salt with water to produce a saturated brine solution used in the manufacture of chlorine. In addition, hydrocarbon feed stocks are stored in the underground caverns onsite. These feed stocks are utilized by hydrocarbon plants at both Louisiana and St. Charles Operations.
