On December 1, 2017, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection submitted a State Implementation Plan (SIP) revision, under the Clean Air Act, to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Florida’s proposed SIP amendment consists of specific conditions from two air construction permits for two facilities, Mosaic New Wales and Mosaic Bartow, as they pertain to emissions of SO2. The EPA approved the request for amendment on February 20, 2020, with an effective approval date of March 23, 2020.
The Florida Department of Environmental Protection is the state’s lead agency for environmental management and stewardship – protecting our air, water and land.
