New Wales Water Loss Incident: Grouting and Well Testing Updates

Mosaic Fertilizer (Mosaic) has completed the secondary stabilization bulk grouting phase, which added 7,100 cubic yards of grout into the upper portions of the sinkhole cavity and has resumed higher pressure grouting at the liner level.

Additionally, Environmental Consulting & Technology, Inc. (ECT) is contacting residents that live within a four mile radius of the sinkhole, and who previously had their drinking water well sampled, to schedule their fourth quarterly well test for 2017.

Mosaic will provide an update on the Q4 well testing when all data have been collected and analyzed.
