Soil and sand tailings movement continues at a steady pace to cover liner as COMANCO nears the completion of a multi-year project.

A series of piping, structures, ponds, ditches, and channels have been constructed to manage water runoff from a phosphogypsum stack located in Central Florida. The entire area was lined to be made waterproof.

The final phase of construction is covering the liner with two feet of sand and soil so that vegetation can be grown.

COMANCO crews are moving thousands of yards a day from borrow areas and grading the material for a second time over 150 acres of slopes, swales, and grades. Close to 7 million cubic yards of material will have been moved when the project is completed.
