Workshop on Source Emission and Ambient Air Monitoring of Mercury, September 13-14, 1999, Bloomington, MN


A workshop on Source Emission and Ambient Air Monitoring of Mercury was held on September 13-14, 1999, in Bloomington, MN. The workshop was sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Office of Research and Development (ORD), and was conducted in collaboration with the Air and Waste Management Association (AWMA) International Specialty Conference on Mercury in the Environment. The purpose of the workshop was to discuss the state-of-the-science in source and ambient air mercury monitoring as well as mercury monitoring research and development needs. The workshop was open to the public and included traditional presentations as well as interactive discussions on key research questions. This workshop report provides a summary of the following topics: 1) the state-of-the-science in source emission and ambient air mercury monitoring; 2)key issues, findings, and results from the workshop, including the need for developing total and speciated mercury Continuous Emission Monitors (CEMs); 3) policy, technical considerations, and challenges associated with implementing mercury CEMs, 4) need for monitoring data to support the development of source/receptor relationships, modeling, and risk assessment, and 5) recommendations by the EPA Workshop Steering Committee for future mercury monitoring research, performance evaluations, and testing. Appendix A provides the agenda and synopses of presentations and panel discussions from the workshop; Appendix B provides a list of workshop participants and contact information.
