Reminder: Submit One-Time Amalgam Compliance Report by July 15

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) and the Kansas State University Pollution Prevention Institute (KSU PPI) are still working on collecting one-time amalgam compliance reports from dental offices. 
Existing sources (those discharging prior to July 14, 2017) must comply with the new dental effluent standards, and must submit their one-time compliance reports immediately.
New sources must comply immediately and submit their one-time compliance reports within 90 days of their first discharge.
For more information on these regulations, who is affected, and how to comply, or to submit your report, visit the KSU PPI dental amalgam page.
