Delta Mercury Exposure Reduction Program (Delta MERP) – Fish Consumption Advisory Sign Posting Evaluation

The Southeast Asian Assistance Center (SAAC) is proud to announce our partnership with the Delta MERP – a collaborative effort of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy, the Central Valley Water Quality Control Board, the Department of Water Resources, and the Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment to reduce human exposure from eating contaminated fish.

The objective of Delta MERP is to raise public awareness to reduce risks of harm from consuming fish with high levels of mercury. SAAC will implement and analyze the responses to a survey designed to evaluate the effectiveness of Delta MERP fish consumption advisory signs that have been posted throughout the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
