Mercury in Wastewater Investigation – Eastern and Southwestern, Ohio

STONE was contracted by separate entities in eastern and southwestern Ohio to sample wastewater to determine the presence and possible sources of mercury which caused the discharges from each company to exceed allowable local limits. Composite sampling of process wastewater was performed at one location, while grab samples were collected at another location. Samples were analyzed using USEPA approved low-level mercury analytical methods. At one location, the results were used to justify that the facility was not a major mercury discharger to the local wastewater treatment facility. The other testing was used to determine whether the mercury entering the wastewater resulted from in-plant sources.

“Having worked with STONE on a couple of projects I can say that Mary Sharrett and her staff work diligently to complete projects on time and in a highly professional manner.  They are trusted by state and federal agencies and their experience with permits saves the client time. They are among the best and I look forward to working with them again in the future.”
