Dairy Farm Mercury Manometer Project

Organization(s) New York State Dept. of Environmental Conservation
Project Description Staff in cooperation with the NYS Department of Ag & Markets has surveyed farms to identify the current use of Hg manometers. The initial survey had certified milk inspectors interviewing farmers. The survey was completed with a direct mailing to the remaining farms. Over 3000 farms were surveyed and 549 manometers in use were identified. The final report on the dairy manometer survey activity will be completed shortly and will be available at the DEC website. A grant application to provide funding to develop an exchange program to assist in the removal and replacement of the mercury manometers in use at dairy farms in New York State was prepared and submitted for approval and funding.
