Reducing Mercury in the Northeastern US [PDF]
Abstract: Over the past 10 years, the states in the Northeast United States—for purposes of this article, the Northeast States are Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont—have put tremendous effort into regional approaches to reduce mercury in the environment. In 1998, the New England Governors (NEG) and Eastern Canadian Premiers (ECP) Committee on the Environment formed a regional mercury task force with a goal of virtually eliminating all in-region human-related sources of mercury emissions and discharges. This initiative was instrumental in jump-starting mercury reduction programs across the region.

Spatial and Seasonal Variability of Dissolved Methylmercury in Two Stream Basins in the Eastern United States
Abstract: Scientists assessed MeHg at large basin, headwater basin, and stream reach scales in two basins (Edisto River, South Carolina; Upper Hudson River, New York) with elevated fish Hg burdens. Spatial/seasonal patterns in surface water dissolved MeHg concentrations and mass fluxes were assessed along with sediment MeHg concentrations and production potentials in the headwater basins to identify MeHg sources and important controls on stream MeHg concentrations throughout the Edisto and Upper Hudson Rivers.

Spatial Patterns of Mercury in Macroinvertebrates and Fishes from Streams of Two Contrasting Forested Landscapes in the Eastern United States
Abstract: During 2007–2009, scientists studied mercury and stable isotope spatial patterns of macroinvertebrates and fishes from two medium-sized forested basins in contrasting settings.
