2022 ACWA Mercury Minimization Plan Workshop: How to Minimize Your Effort and Maximize Results Using ACWA’s New Model Plan Tools – July 28, 2022, 10:00 am to Noon, Newport, Oregon
ACWA is providing a unique opportunity and free resources for communities that are or will soon be required to tackle mercury pollution through your wastewater discharge permits. We are holding a two-hour workshop in Newport, OR to share insights and information about wastewater Mercury Minimization Plan (MMP) requirements, resources, and tools to make it easier for communities to put together a plan that Oregon DEQ will approve. Space is limited.
ACWA recently created a Model Mercury Minimization Plan tool that is based on DEQ’s guidance and can be used as a baseline for your community’s MMP. At this workshop, we will highlight key parts of the ACWA Model MMP and explain how to use the tool. Workshop participants will hear from DEQ about their perspectives on the MMP requirements and gain knowledge from the experiences of a small community in accomplishing their MMP tasks and goals. You will also learn about easily accessible resources to help implement your MMP, and you will leave the workshop with mercury reduction outreach materials for schools in your community.
