The source and transport of mercury in Sierra Nevada watersheds, from hydraulic mine sites to foothill reservoirs and beyond, has detrimental implications for ecosystem resiliency and community health. The Headwater Mercury Source Reduction (HMSR) Strategy works to identify, assess and mitigate these impacts.
“The work you do makes a big difference…your voice is heard and the work that you all are doing of bringing together science driven public policy and focusing on the local scale that then can be scaled to the entire Sierra is incredibly valuable.”Jared Blumenfeld, CalEPA Secretary, at The Sierra Funds Fall 2020 HMSR Workshop
