Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta
Methylmercury TMDL - Control Studies

Delta Mercury TMDL Implementation Phase 1 Methylmercury Control Studies

During Phase 1 of the Delta Mercury Control Program, entities responsible for reducing methylmercury in the Delta are required to participate in studies to develop and evaluate ways to manage methylmercury. An independent, scientific and technical advisory committee (TAC) is advising the Central Valley Water Board during the Phase 1 study period. Studies underway focus on different methylmercury source types by means of monitoring, pilot testing, or modeling. Study work plans were approved in October 2013. Progress and Final Study Reports are due October 2015 and 2018, respectively.
