WATER CONSERVATION - POWERED BY PHOSPHATE INNOVATION
Water Conservation Leadership
We're Doing MoRe to Use Less
Innovation Strengthens Conservation
20% Less Water Use By 2025
Installing more flow meters and measurement devices to better monitor water use and find opportunities for reductions.
Automating processes and equipment.
Using Rainwater To
Phosphate innovation means more environmental conservation. The latest technology and innovative practices help Florida's phosphate produces better conserve the environment.
Using less (and recycling more) water is an important part of wetland conservation. It means more water in which seasonal birds, fish, reptiles and mammals can thrive.
Reconnecting Ancient Rivers And Streams
We use high-tech methods to conserve wetlands and uplands for the benefit of the environment. Expert engineers use hydrologic modeling to design water resource management systems. Global Positioning Satellites beam information down to construction equipment on earth that is operated autonomously to rehabilitate streams and uplands.
In some cases, these streams were severed or destroyed by natural or manmade impacts decades age. Today, innovations are making it easier to rebuild them while reconnecting wildlife habitat. Reconnecting streams helps improve water quality to downstream areas helps replenish the aquifer and filters water bound for larger water bodies.
Wildlife Habitat Conservation
Once phosphate operations are complete, innovative methods are used to reclaim every acre and return it to nature. Tens of thousands of acres enjoy productive second lives as public parks, fishing lakes, farms, pasture or for permanent conservation.
