On February 11, 2017, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Region 4 Emergency Response and Removal Program took over temporary control and funding of wastewater treatment operations at the former Mississippi Phosphates Corporation (MPC) Site at 601 Industrial Road in Pascagoula, Mississippi. EPA made the decision to assume temporary control of water treatment operations at the facility due to insufficient funding on the part of the MPC Environmental Trust, which owns the property.
