The Phosphate Management Program regulates (permitting, compliance, enforcement) the design, construction, operation and maintenance of phosphogypsum stack systems. It ensures the proper closure and long-term monitoring and maintenance of those systems which have concluded useful production, or which are otherwise required by rule to be closed. The program also administers financial responsibility requirements designed to guarantee that owners/operators have the financial ability to properly close and manage the gypstacks.
