Mercury Program Projects WWT Facilities
 
 

From March through June 2010, the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) funded NEWMOA to research mercury pollution prevention awareness and practices, and to support outreach efforts during the upgrades of wastewater and drinking water treatment facilities. NEWMOA partnered with the New England Interstate Water Pollution Control Commission (NEIWPCC) to complete this project, and the two groups prepared the following materials:

  • "Mercury-Added Products Found at Drinking Water & Wastewater Treatment Facilities" provides descriptions and photographs of mercury-added products likely to be found at these facilities; describes the amount of mercury in the products (if known), their potential for breakage and spills, and possibility of human exposure to mercury if broken; and notes the availability of non-mercury alternatives (where applicable).

In addition, NEWMOA developed a PowerPoint presentation that summarizes the overall results of this project:
