Senate Energy Chairwoman Mary L. Landrieu is signaling that her committee could vote after the August break on the nominee for the No. 2 spot at the Energy Department, reports CQ Roll Call’s Geof Koss.

“This is a woman we need to get to work,” Landrieu said about Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, whom President Barack Obama has picked to be deputy Energy Secretary.

Sherwood-Randall currently serves as a nuclear proliferation and defense policy adviser for the White House’s National Security Council.

At her confirmation hearing Thursday, she faced questions on range of issues, including nuclear nonproliferation and the defense-related sites she would help oversee at the Energy Department.

She also pledged attention to the domestic energy side of the Energy Department’s portfolio, which she called “an essential source of our strength in the 21st century.”

    On April 1, a sewer spill occurred, due to a lagoon discharge pipeline that broke. The broken pipe was repaired immediately. The non disinfected treatment discharge lasted for approximately one hour. The estimated amount is 1,800 gallons of partially treated wastewater discharged into Schooner Creek at the Wastewater Treatment Plant outfall east of the Schooner Creek Bridge.

    Together with everything that appears to be developing inside this specific subject matter, many of your viewpoints are somewhat exciting. Having said that, I appologize, but I do not give credence to your entire idea, all be it exhilarating none the less. It looks to me that your comments are not totally justified and in simple fact you are yourself not really wholly convinced of your assertion. In any event I did take pleasure in reading through it.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very web savvy so I’m not 100 positive. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

    I must show some appreciation to you for rescuing me from this type of scenario. As a result of surfing through the world wide web and coming across suggestions which are not productive, I was thinking my entire life was done. Being alive minus the answers to the problems you’ve resolved through your good site is a crucial case, and the ones that might have in a wrong way affected my career if I had not encountered your site. Your personal skills and kindness in taking care of a lot of things was tremendous. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not come upon such a thing like this. I can also at this moment relish my future. Thanks a lot so much for your expert and effective guide. I won’t hesitate to suggest your web page to anybody who should get guidelines about this topic.
