Dentists and Hg


We have been working with a dentist in western North Carolina that has a
sewer discharge permit for mercury of 0.03 ug/l  (note, detection is
typically 0.2 ug/l).  Even with the best mercury recovery/treatment
technologies for dentist's wastewater, there is no guarantee that they would
be consistently below detection for Hg.  This dentist has even considered
pump & hauling their effluent.  Does any have any experiences working with
such a case?
