Question Where can I find information about mercury?

Answer Mercury is a persistent, bioaccumulative toxin that can cause damage to the human brain and nervous system. Mercury from various sources can pollute air, soil and water and should be closely monitored. The DEC has established a Mercury Task Force to help coordinate its response to issues on mercury and the environment.
