SL229: Landscape Diversity: Multiple-Use Landscapes for Reclaimed Phosphatic Clay Areas

Figure 1. This concept drawing shows the landscape that will be used for the deposition of phosphatic clay, the so-called containment area. Note the windrows of materials and the formation of a berm around the perimeter. The shape of this basin will affect the shape of the phosphatic clay after reclamation and differential settling.
