MeHg Control Study Workplan Submitted to Technical Advisory Committee

April 19, 2013
This workplan, which is the final deliverable of the NPS Workgroup under our current 319(h) grant, presents a collaborative methylmercury control study workplan. This workplan prioritizes management practices (MPs) for the six land use categories considered by the NPS Workgroup. As noted in the introduction, four site-specific control studies have also been submitted by individual study proponents. You can download the workplan here.

Control Study Budget Estimate and Summary of Potential Funding Source Approaches

April 4, 2013
In response to Task 4 of the 319(h) grant, MEI is providing this memorandum with estimates control study budgets and summaries of potential funding source approaches. This memo includes an estimated budget for recent, ongoing, and proposed future control studies. This information has been discussed with NPS Workgroup members and is consistent with similar information provided in the NPS Workgroup’s control study workplan.

SRWP Proposal for Another 319(h) Planning Grant

The Sacramento River Watershed Program has submitted a proposal for another 319(h) planning grant to continue to the NPS Workgroup’s efforts through 2015. The two main documents for that proposal can be downloaded here. Narrative and Scope, Schedule, and Budget.

Control Study Workplan Outline

August 17, 2012
This memorandum, which is a product of the Nonpoint Sources Workgroup (NPS Workgroup), presents a methylmercury control study workplan “outline.” The NPS Workgroup submitted this outline on behalf of all Cooperating Entities. The complete Workplan (due in April 2012) will provide a prioritized set of management practices (MPs) for the six land use categories considered by the NPS Workgroup.

Knowledge Base for Nonpoint Sources Methylmercury Control Study

August 17, 2012
This memorandum is a product of the Nonpoint Sources (NPS) Workgroup for Task 2 – Develop Knowledge Base. This knowledge base serves as a starting point to analyze the influence of water and land management practices (MPs) on methylmercury (MeHg) concentrations and loadings from wetlands and irrigated agriculture in the Delta.
