Plan for Development of a Statewide Total Maximum Daily Load for Mercury (Mercury TMDL)

?The Bureau of Laboratories convened a workgroup, consisting of staff from the Division of Water Resource Management (DWRM), Division of Air Resource Management (DARM), the Bureau of Labs, and outside consultants, to develop a statewide, scientifically defensible TMDL for mercury. The project consists of gathering and assessing a complex suite of data (involving mercury emission, deposition, and aquatic cycling data) and conducting modeling to quantify the needed mercury reductions to address mercury-related impairment in state surface waters.
