Abstract: Area 3A in the Tenoroc State Reserve near Lakeland, Florida is an inactive and abandoned phosphatic waste clay area. The disposal area has been inactive for several years and the clays have been consolidated under self-weight since deposition began. Specific measures had to be designed and installed to control turbid discharges from the site during the earthmoving and land clearing phases of reclamation. To prevent turbid discharges beyond the project area into state waters, a system utilizing chemical flocculants was proposed and designed. Prior to construction, laboratory testing with high molecular weight polymers was conducted to evaluate their effectiveness with the site soils.
