1997 Mercury Study Report to Congress

EPA's 1997 Report to Congress on Mercury is an eight volume document. The short overview gives a concise summary of the report. The eight volumes of the December 1997 report (EPA 452/R-97-0003) are also available for download below in Portable Document Format (PDF). The entire set (PB98-124720) can be ordered from the National Technical Information Service (NTIS) or each volume can be ordered individually from NTIS using the PB numbers noted below.

The Report provides an assessment of the magnitude of U.S. mercury emissions by source, the health and environmental implications of those emissions, and the availability and cost of control technologies. As the state-of-the-science for mercury is continuously and rapidly evolving, this Report should be viewed as a "snapshot" of the 1997understanding of mercury.
