More Mercury are you serious?
From Joe Cornwall @ http://www.flyfishohio.com/
The Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commission (ORSANCO) governs water quality standards on the Ohio River. They are trying to adopt a standard that will permit coal fired power plants to discharge more mercury and other toxins directly into the waters on the Ohio River. Mercury is particularly toxic to women of child bearing age, the fetus and children. There is already a fish consumption advisory for mercury and other toxins in 800 miles of the Ohio river... Even if you don't live in the Ohio River Basin your comments are
extremely important. Tell them "No Increased Mercury Levels! Send comments to Ohio River Valley Water Sanitation Commisson
