Florida Plant Leak ‘Imminent’ With Millions Of Gallons Of Radioactive Wastewater

Florida, man. There’s a very serious situation on hand at a wastewater plant near Tampa.

According to reports, the abandoned Piney Point plant is on the verge of an “imminent” leak that could unleash millions of gallons of acidic, radioactive water into surrounding neighborhoods.

ABC affiliated WFLA in Tampa reports that an evacuation is in progress and a portion of the surrounding highway and roads have been shut down.

“Evacuate area NOW. Collapse of Piney Point Stack Imminent!” Manatee County Public Safety said in an alert issued Saturday afternoon, according to the Sarasota Herald-Tribune.

There have been attempts to plug the reservoir — which contains phosphogypsum, a radioactive waste formed from fertilizer made from phosphate rock — with dirt and stones, but they have been unsuccessful.

Manatee County Administrator Dr. Scott Hopes warned that 600 million gallons of waste could flood into the surrounding neighborhoods and areas within a matter of minutes if the worst-case scenario takes place.
