EPA/WATER RIN: 2040-AF26 Publication ID: Spring 2013 
Title: Effluent Guidelines and Standards for the Dental Point Source Category 
Abstract: EPA is developing pretreatment standards for pollutant discharges from dental offices. When dentists place or remove amalgam fillings, mercury, and other contaminants are flushed into the sewer. Dental amalgam contains mercury and other metals that have the potential to pass through or interfere with municipal wastewater treatment at publicly owned treatment works (POTWs). EPA's technology assessment will focus on best management practices, such as use of amalgam separators, as a potential regulatory requirement.
