Like an episode of The Simpsons – unfortunately, it is happening in real life, in the heart of California!
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis of Florida was forced to declare a state of emergency, due to a toxic wastewater possibility for collapse. And the officials already evacuated the population of the area, so a precaution measure was the next thing to do…
“A portion of the containment wall at the leak site shifted laterally,” Manatee County Director of Public Safety Jake Saur told WSTP after a “significant leak” was discovered at the Piney Point processing plant. Saur further cautioned that “structural collapse could occur at any time.”
Gov. DeSantis declared a state of emergency around the area on April 3 “due to a possible breach of mixed saltwater from the south reservoir at the Piney Point facility. The emergency order will enable Manatee County officials to respond.”
The people were evacuated due to an “imminent uncontrolled release of wastewater.”
According to the Center for Biological Diversity, in a response to the disaster:
“In addition to high concentrations of radioactive materials, phosphogypsum and processed wastewater can also contain carcinogens and heavy toxic metals. For every ton of phosphoric acid produced, the fertilizer industry creates 5 tons of radioactive phosphogypsum waste, which is stored in mountainous stacks hundreds of acres wide and hundreds of feet tall.”
