Public meeting scheduled on Mosaic renewal permit for pollutant discharge

Next Monday the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) will hold an open house public meeting; it’s about Mosaic’s renewal request to discharge wastewater. Much of it would go into the Peace River basin.

The Peace River begins in Polk County and flows generally southwest through much of the center of Florida until it empties into Charlotte Harbor between Punta Gorda and Port Charlotte in Southwest Florida.

Mosaic is asking for a renewal permit for its Bartow Chemical Plant through the National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES). The Florida Department of Environmental Protection open house public meeting is:

Monday, September 30 from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. at Mulberry Civic Center at 901 Northeast 5th Street in Mulberry.
