Details on last Wednesday public hearing on legislation that would limit the amo
Details on last Wednesday public hearing on legislation that would limit the amount of mercury that HoltraChem of Orrington and trash incinerators release into the environment. A 1997 Natural Resources Council of Maine study on toxic discharges showed that Georgia Pacific, Great Northern, S.D. Warren and Kroy Tanning produced levels of mercury. Scientific progress has allowed for conflicting interpretations of what level of mercury is allowable, and the new measuring techniques are accounting for higher readings of the metal. Former Maine Department of Conservation Commissioner Richard Barringer is working as a consultant for HoltraChem in the aftermath of the company's most recent mercury spill.
