Operations Update on Well Installation and Sinkhole Repairs

P-5 Standby Recovery Well Installation

Mosaic Fertilizer successfully installed the P-5 recovery well which is located approximately one-half mile west of the sinkhole. P-5 was installed in accordance with the Consent Order and will provide additional recovery capacity if needed. P-4B remains the only recovery well in operation.

Grouting Update and LiDAR Redeployment

Over the last several weeks, Mosaic Fertilizer deposited more than 10,000 cubic yards of grout to stabilize the upper cavity of the sinkhole. This week, the LIDAR system and other assessment tools were deployed to assess those grouting efforts. The data collected will be used to refine the location of the deeper, high-pressure grouting holes which will be used to repair the base of the sinkhole.
