Title: Mercury Remediation Technology Development for Lower East Fork Poplar Creek—FY 2017 Progress Report

Abstract

Mercury (Hg) remediation is a high priority for the US Department of Energy (DOE) Oak Ridge Office of Environmental Management, especially at and near the Y-12 National Security Complex (Y-12) where historical Hg use has resulted in contaminated buildings, soils, and downstream surface waters. To address Hg contamination of East Fork Poplar Creek (EFPC), DOE has adopted a phased, adaptive management approach to remediation, which includes Hg treatment actions at Y-12 in the short-term and research and technology development (TD) to evaluate longer-term solutions in the downstream environment (US Department of Energy 2014).
