Reducing Mercury

South Carolina Mercury Assessment and Reduction Initiative

The S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) is working with the public, industry, governments and other stakeholders to identify ways to decrease the amount of mercury in South Carolina’s environment. The S.C. Mercury Assessment and Reduction Initiative, which began in 2008, focuses on three priorities:
  • Assessment and reduction of mercury emissions
  • Continued and enhanced risk communication
  • Increased recycling of mercury-containing products

The S.C. Mercury Assessment and Reduction Initiative, published in 2010, discusses assessment, monitoring and reduction efforts and recommends actions to accomplish those and other related goals.

During the creation and review of the draft S.C. Mercury Assessment and Reduction Initiative, we collected feedback and comments. From this review period, we created a Comment Response Table.

We welcome your participation. Please send us your comments.
