GLRPPR Sector Resource: Third Compendium of States' Mercury Activities

Title:
Third Compendium of States' Mercury Activities

Abstract:
The Quicksilver Caucus (QSC) sent surveys to all 50 state environmental agencies for information about their mercury issues and programs to assess the status of state and federal efforts to address mercury pollution. The following Compendium summarizes the information provided by 42 states, plus additional state information from other sources and state and national data from the United States Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA). The document describes how state governments have responded to this critical issue, and provides a resource for organizations developing, implementing, and assessing mercury reduction efforts. The report also identifies several challenges to continued progress.
