The study has found no evidence of a health or environmental problem as a result of emissions of mercury from power plants. This conclusion has led to the recommendation that a specific control program to address mercury emissions from power plants is not necessary at this time. It is estimated that power plants contributed less than 8 percent of the more than 2000 tons of mercury lost to the environment by all man-made sources in 1974. Studies and scenarios indicate little or no effect of mercury from power plant emissions on ambient air or water concentrations. Localized increases could occur with soil concentrations. Direct relationship of the power plant emissions to ambient concentrations could not be ascertained. Health effects, standards and regulations, transport, and transformations of mercury are discussed.
