That is remains from Phosphate fertilizer, it is what they tested and found trace amounts of radiation(in the form of Radon)in. They say it won't hurt you to be around it, but I wouldn't go over and start playing in it or anything. It can't be too harmful because probably every cinder block in every building in the shoals area built before the 80's has it in the mix. TVA used to sell it to the concrete place in Florence.
