On September 15, 1998 EPA released several documents supporting its mercury information collection request (ICR). If approval is granted by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), coal-fired power plants will be required to obtain coal samples from each coal shipment, have an ultimate analysis conducted on each sample, and have each sample analyzed for mercury and chlorine content. EPA will also randomly select 138 coal-fired utility boilers and require them to conduct, sometime during a 1-year period, simultaneous stack testing for mercury upstream and downstream of any control device. RMB has posted zipped files containing the ICR documents to our FTP library in both WordPerfect and Adobe PDF formats.
