Default Dam Florida!

PALMETTO, Fla. — Overnight attempts to fix the leak at the former Piney
Point phosphate processing plant were unsuccessful, local leaders
acknowledged Saturday afternoon, as efforts have been ongoing to prevent
a much bigger flood of wastewater.

Crews used heavy equipment to pile earth material and rock in an attempt
to "kind of plug the hole in the dam" on a large section of the breach
but were unsuccessful due to the amount of pressure pressed upon it,
said Manatee County acting county administrator Dr. Scott Hopes.

"When they reached a point where they were about to celebrate, and then
it blew threw," Scott said.

Some 800 million gallons of process water, sal****er from the Port
Manatee dredge project, rainfall and stormwater runoff are kept on the
site in a few retention ponds located at the corner of U.S. Highway 41
and Buckeye Road. It's owned by HRK Holdings, and Florida’s Department
of Environmental protection has oversight.

Florida's Manatee County Public Safety Department has declared a state
of emergency and ordered a complete evacuation of the Piney Point
reservoir site and surrounding areas due a leak that could cause a
collapse of phosphogypsum stacks, waste that is created during
fertilizer production and phosphate rock mining.

The Tampa-area reservoir could cause collapse at any time, according to
Manatee County Director of Public Safety Jacob Sauer, who gave an update
on Saturday.

*But the evacuation notice was countermanded by Florida Governor Ron
DeathSantis, who declared a ban on all reservoir collapses and
evacuations for the entire county *and* a ban on mask mandates.
That should solve the problem, right?*

It seems that when containment becomes a problem, dilution is the solution.
At least that's how beurocrats see it. I wonder if they had consulted
engineers and scientists instead of liberal arts basket weavers and
lawyers, the outcome would have been different. Sometimes even non colitch
folks come up with good ideas.
