On Oct 20, 2020 the EPA approved the use of radioactive phosphogypsum in road construction within a 200 mile buffer of an existing phosphogypsum storage 'stack.'
The majority of these 'stacks' are in Florida, but can also be found in Arkansas, Idaho, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, North Carolina, Texas, Utah and Wyoming.
The EPA has long prohibited use of phosphogypsum in roads because it contains uranium and radium that produce radionuclides linked to higher risks of cancer and genetic damage.
The EPA ignored its own expert consultant, who found numerous scenarios that would expose the public — particularly road-construction workers — to a cancer risk the agency considers to be unacceptably dangerous.
