The Army Corp of Engineers Seeks Phosphate Comments


BRADENTON -- The Army Corp of Engineers is currently accepting comments until April 25, 2011 concerning the scoping process for the Area Wide Environmental Impact Statement for Phosphate Mining in the Central Florida Phosphate District.

This Areawide EIS (AEIS) is one of the most significant reviews that the Army Corps of Engineers can perform for the protection of Florida's water supply, air quality and the general well being and health of Florida's citizens. Because of the potential adverse impacts associated with phosphate mining and processing, it is important to have an adequate review of the industry before additional mining is permitted.

ManaSota-88 strongly encourages interested citizens to submit comments to the Army Corps of Engineers on or before April 25th. Comments can be made through the Corps website at: http://www.phosphateaeis.org/index.html.
