A new technology has revealed how mercury can be measured in water supplies.
The new method, developed by a team of researchers from the US, Germany and India, is able to measure the concentration of mercury in water.
The technology was developed by researchers at the University of California, San Diego, and the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, which was part of the US Department of Commerce.
The team also used data from the EPA’s National Toxicology Program to calculate how much mercury can safely be ingested.
The EPA data showed that about 10 parts per million of mercury is the level of mercury that is detected in drinking-water samples taken from homes and businesses across the US.
The scientists’ work is published in the Journal of Environmental Engineering and was led by Dr. J. Thomas G. Gage, a research professor in the Department for Environment and Energy.
The study was funded by the National Science Foundation and the Office of Science.
