EPA Presentation at Brooks Rand Labs
Dr. Chris Eckley, an environmental scientist and geochemist with the US EPA, presented his latest research at Brooks Rand Labs on August 20th as part of BRL’s monthly seminar series for the professional development of our staff. Dr. Eckley’s presentation, Mercury Transport and Transformation at the Black Butte Mine Superfund Site, reported on some interesting findings related to methylmercury production in the Cottage Grove Reservoir in Oregon, which was the first body of water in Oregon to have a fish consumption public health advisory listed due to high mercury levels. Brooks Rand Labs has been involved in the mercury research being conducted at the Black Butte Mine and surrounding areas for many years.
