      [ad_1] A Short History Phosphate is a natural, non-renewable resource that is obtained by mining phosphate-containing minerals. Florida’s phosphate rock deposits are believed to have originated when conditions in the seawater caused dissolved phosphorus to solidify and form the sediment that is mined today (1). Sea life also played a big part in forming the [ ]Author: Techfeatured.

Tampa Bay Water, the regional water supplier, has a water intake on the river and is allowed to take 10 percent of the river’s flow when the flow is greater than 80 million gallons a day. The Alafia is now classified as a class 3 water body, meaning it should be clean enough for fishing and other recreation.

The Tampa Bay estuary, Alafia River, other local tributaries and watersheds are known to be “navigable waterways” or public domain. Phosphate industry officials historically cause severe environmental impacts called dead zones in the Alafia River and the Tampa Bay estuary.

This hard-rock phosphate was mined in a region extending from Alachua to Citrus counties. The mining of pebble phosphate began in in central Florida and in the s in Hamilton County. Today phosphate mining occurs primarily in the central Florida area (Polk, Hillsborough, Manatee and Hardee counties).

The Alafia River at Alafia River State Park, just a few miles from the Mosaic phosphate plant outside Mulberry, Florida. We were hard pressed to find water on the river that wasn’t coated by green algae. Phosphate, like oil, is becoming increasingly harder to find in large deposits.

Phosphate mining companies own or have mineral rights to overacres, mostly in the Peace and Myakka River watersheds, with mining projects planned for o acres. Approximatelyacres have already been mined in Florida yet fewer. Mosaic, the world’s largest phosphate company, made headlines around the world when a giant sinkhole opened up in August in a towering stack of acidic, radioactive phosphate mining waste.

The sinkhole sent a reported million gallons of polluted water into the underground fresh water aquifer. Florida Phosphate Mining History. Florida phosphate mining dates back to the first hard rock deposits found near Hawthorne in Alachua County in Endurance was imperative in the early years when phosphate mining was done with wheelbarrows, picks and shovels.

Next came mule-drawn scrapers. In Florida, the phosphate rock is extracted by a process referred to as strip-mining. Unlike mining in other states, phosphate deposits are found closer to the surface, about feet below ground.

Sandy topsoil, also known as overburden, is removed by large digging machines called draglines. The Peace River Basin spans miles from the Green Swamp to Charlotte Harbor. The majority of the river runs through “Bone Valley”, the area in central Florida where the majority of the phosphate impacts have originated.

Paul DeGaeta, lifetime resident on the Peace River and probably the greatest advocate for the health of the estuary, reminded us all of the phosphate spill, which he also lived through.

A dike burst in Fort Meade spilling two billion gallons of phosphate waste into the Peace River and killing 90% of the fish, according to a biologist of the former Florida Game and Fresh Water Commission.

IMPACT OF POTENTIAL PHOSPHATE MINING ON THE HYDROLOGY OF OSCEOLA NATIONAL FOREST, FLORIDA By James A. Miller, Gilbert H. Hughes, Robert W. Hull, John Vecchioli, and Paul R. Seaber ABSTRACT Osceola National Forest is a nearly flat, poorly drained, square mile area in Columbia and Baker Counties, Florida.

However, typical household and agriculture water consumed is either returned to the aquifers by “percolation”, run-off for rivers or evaporates and returns to earth as rain.

History of Phosphate in Florida. Florida phosphate mining dates back to deposits first found in Alachua County, near Hawthorne, in In the early years, phosphate ore was collected out of the river by hand.

Very soon, the mining was done the hard way with picks, shovels, wheelbarrows, strong backs, and sweat. Next came mule-drawn scrapers. Florida's food producing industry is adversely affected due to Florida's phosphate industry's fluoride poisoning events. Estimates of the loss to those affected are about $ million dollars, (6).

Unfortunately, fluorine is released during the production of phosphate-based fertilizer by a. Phosphorus, the most critical element in modern agriculture, has been acquired through phosphate strip mining in Florida for over a century, but Florida’s phosphate is quickly running out.
