Responsible stewardship of water resources is a cornerstone of Mosaic’s phosphate operations. Like most other industries, we use water as a part of our operations.
Mosaic uses state-of-the-art water treatment methods to meet federal and state standards before releasing water into local waterways through permitted outfalls. The standards are met by blending waters collected from stormwater runoff, non-process water or other sources, like groundwater. We calculate 10 percent of Mosaic’s total permitted groundwater use is currently used for blending to meet stringent water quality standards.
