Mercury in Schools

Organization(s) Connecticut Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description A statewide conference on "Getting Toxic Chemicals out of CT Schools" was held on May 21, 2002 for about 140 participants. The audience included teachers, school administrators, emergency responders, local officials, and school nurses. The agenda provided information on spill clean-up, state and federal requirements, case studies from a town on spill management, and a large high school on a clean-out. A program to clean out schools of mercury and other hazardous chemicals continued with funding from a Mercury Reduction Supplemental Environmental Project account that has been established at the Agency. Approximately 30 schools have indicated interest in participation as of Summer 2002. These clean-outs were accomplished by December 31, 2002. For more information contact: Tom Metzner, CT DEP (860) 424-3365.
