Mercury Rising

Record #:
Mercury is one of the earth's most poisonous substances. Coal-fired power plants, medical and municipal incinerators, and some mercury-using, chemical manufacturing plants contribute highly to North Carolina's mercury pollution problems. Because of elevated mercury levels in fish over the past decade, the state has issued advisories to avoid eating fish in ten eastern streams and one species in the Atlantic Ocean.
