Mississippi Phosphates Corporation (MPC) – Pascagoula, MS

KEMRON was awarded a task order for the remediation of the former Mississippi Phosphates Corporation (MPC) located in Pascagoula, MS. The site has been proposed to the National Priorities List (NPL). MPC began operations in the 1950’s manufacturing fertilizer and eventually expanding to encompass over 1000 acres and includes a phosphoric acid plant, a diammonium phosphate plant, a sulfuric acid plant, and associated storage warehouses. The facility also includes a wastewater treatment plant along with a series of support structures. Material storage areas include two phosphogypsum waste piles (gypstacks) covering over 340 acres and wastewater storage ponds containing over 700 million gallons of low pH wastewater. Contaminants include ammonia as nitrogen, arsenic, cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, nickel, and zinc. Requirements under this task order include operation and maintenance of wastewater storage units, operation and maintenance of the wastewater treatment plant, pond management and repair and maintenance of all associated equipment.

Wastewater treatment and collected storm water treatment activities is conducted in two wastewater treatment plants along with discharge monitoring, and water quality sampling associated with plant operations and permit compliance. The two-wastewater treatment plants include a mechanical treatment system comprised of a double lime treatment process and a second unit referred to as the in situ treatment system comprised of a series of canals where chemical addition is used to adjust pH. KEMRON is treating 1 million gallons per day through the mechanical plant; 4 million gallons per day through the in situ system within the existing canals. KEMRON also conducts all inspections, pond level measurements, and refueling activities associated with pump operations.
