MercuryLogoUpdatedThe EPA Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation completed the first pilot project of the Partners in Technical Assistance Program (PTAP) with Oregon State University Superfund Research Program and the London School in Cottage Grove, Oregon.

The project aimed to give K-8 students a foundation on environmental health science, and then use local history of the Black Butte Mine Superfund Site to engage students on topics related to mercury in the environment and the impact on human health.

An educational packet, two videos (Careers in Environmental Health and The Black Butte Mine), and a teacher resource web page were created for the project.
