Slight lateral movement continued to be reported along the north perimeter, crest and slope of Mosaic Fertilizer's Gypsum Stack No. 4, which holds back hundreds of millions of gallons of wastewater. But the company says the overall rate of movement has slowed substantially.

Even so, Mosaic is taking steps to secure the reservoir to ensure that any potential leak of acidic wastewater does not escape from their property
