to inform the public
In order for ORD to address uncertainties resulting from past or historical mining practices a technology transfer workshop was conducted in November, 2000 in San Francisco, CA. Two primary objectives for this workshop were: 1) identify state-of-the-science practices and techniques for reducing the use and release of mercury at its source, understanding fate and transport mechanisms and assessing impacts to human health and the ecology and 2) determine what role ORD can play in better understanding the research activities needed to be conducted to fulfill the goal of the Mercury Research Strategy. Proceedings from this meeting were synthesized into a comprehensive technology transfer document available for public distribution.
