Mercury Outreach For POTW'S

Project Information

Award Amount:$90,000.00
Dollars Leveraged:$0.00
Start-End Dates:10/1/02-9/30/03
Description:IDEM and its partners developed a training program for publicly owned treatment works (POTW) facilities to reduce mercury emission and discharge. The training program consisted of workshops and site visits, which were offered to 45 POTW facilities throughout the state of Indiana. IDEM and its partners provided POTW's with technical expertise in pollution prevention and source reduction, in an attempt to reduce mercury discharge and/or emission. The training utilized the "train the trainer" concept and equipped the POTW's with the necessary pollution prevention/source reduction tools needed to promote mercury reduction within the local business community.

IDEM focused on POTW's delegated to issue and enforce Industrial Pretreatment permits. As a result, a portion of the training focused on regulatory integration of pollution prevention and source reduction into permitting and enforcement programs of local pretreatment programs. IDEM included a business outreach portion of th training. This training could easily be utilized by non-delegated POTW's.
