Full report in PDF format

As recommended in our 2003 report, the Legislature and the Department of Environmental Protection have taken steps to strengthen financial responsibility requirements for phosphate mining companies. These new requirements should better assure that mining companies have sufficient financial resources to close phosphate gypsum stacks, which have caused significant environmental damage in the past.
