Abstract
In this document, EPA has compiled information on current mercury discharges from dental offices, best management practices (BMPs), and amalgam separators. For amalgam separators, EPA has looked at the frequency with which they are currently used; their effectiveness in reducing discharges to POTWs; and the capital and annual costs associated with their installation and operation. EPA has also conducted a POTW pass-through analysis on mercury for the industry.
