A large sinkhole has caused contaminated wastewater to flow into an aquifer in Polk County, Florida in the US. The sinkhole appeared at the Mosaic phosphate fertilizer plant about three weeks ago, and 215 million gallons of water containing sulphate, sodium and gypsum, which contains low levels of radiation have drained into the aquifer since then.
