Mulberry, Fl. – The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is looking into a possible liner tear under a gypsum stack at Mosaic’s New Wales facility.
After a sinkhole created a disastrous situation in 2016, Mosaic installed a high-tech network of sensors and monitors. Those sensors recently detected some irregularities which gave rise to suspicions.
The Florida DEP issued a pollution notice on March 24, which was refuted by Mosaic’s spokesperson Jackie Barron. The company claims that they are investigating the incident but there is no confirmation of any kind of void or cavity.
