This volume summarizes findings of the draft Mercury Study Report to Congress required of U.S. EPA under the Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990. The summary volume provides an overview of the Report's findings on properties and industrial uses of mercury; analysis of atmospheric releases, process, fate and transport of mercury; and analysis of potential exposure pathways of wildlife and humans. The summary volume focuses on potential adverse health effects of methylmercury exposure to humans and wildlife from consumption of fish and shellfish. Management alternatives including the following possible control strategies were reviewed: pollution prevention measures, product substitution and process modification; materials separation; and flue gas treatment technologies. Costs of various control measures and research needs were presented. The volume of the draft Report also includes scientific peer-review comments as a supplement.
