This document (the Mercury Risk TSD) describes the national-scale risk assessment for mercury completed to inform the appropriate and necessary determination for electric utility steam generating units in the United States (U.S. EGUs), pursuant to Section 112(n)(1)(A) of the Clean Air Act (CAA). See Section III of the preamble to the proposed U.S. EGU Toxics Rule. This risk assessment focuses on risk associated with mercury released from U.S. EGUs that has deposited to freshwater watersheds within the continental U.S., bioaccumulated in fish and is consumed as methylmercury (MeHg) in dietary fish by the public.
