Gov. Edwards Attends BioLab & Port Wonder Events in Lake Charles
Governor John Bel Edwards spent the day in Lake Charles. Today, the Governor was attending two groundbreaking events to include BioLab. The pool chemical and chlorine suppler was destroyed after a fire broke out due to damage caused by Hurricane Laura.
Edwards attended the BioLab groundbreaking event this morning at 10:00am and spoke on the importance of getting the plant back up to speed. Construction is now underway for a new facility that will hopefully be up and running by the end of next year.
Later today, he will attend the Port Wonder groundbreaking ceremony on the lakefront beginning at 1:00pm. The Children's Museum and Nature Center is a highly anticipated attraction for the city and will be a family destination for many years to come. Construction is already underway, and the attraction should be completed by early next year, if not sooner.
