Nobody seems to know how much water spilled over the rim of a phosphate mine’s cooling pond located near the Upper Suwannee River last week, but officials say there are no environmental concerns at this point.
The overflow began June 27 at a cooling pond owned by the PCS Phosphate mine in Hamilton County when the pond was filled to capacity by rains from Tropical Storm Debby and overflowed onto a nearby road, and into a ditch and Swift Creek, according to Dee Ann Miller, a spokesperson for the Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
