RE: Mercury from metal stampling




Wendy,
Mercury may be trapped in the drain traps of sinks, etc., from past
practices,  and is constantly leaching into the water. Take all of the drain
traps apart and clean them.

Subject: Mercury from metal stampling


We just received this request for technical information.  Does anyone have
experience in this area?

"....(we are) in the process of investigating the source of Mercury for a
metal stamping plant.  The intent of this mail is to gain some additional
insight into the Mercury Minimization program with regards to Stamping
facility.

The results of the quarterly wastewater sampling conducted at this facility
indicated the concentration of Mercury to be 0.3 ppb. Additional
verification sampling conducted at this facility confirmed this result. The
inspectors at DWSD would like to see the total elimination of mercury. Our
review of MSDS and process did not indicate any obvious utilization of
Mercury.

Please let us know if there may be any other sources hidden in the process
or process material that needs to be investigated for the source of
Mercury."



Thanks.
Wendy
