Nevada Mercury Control Program (NMCP) - Public Notices
The Nevada Mercury Control Program (NMCP) regulations were developed with public participation in mind. Before a Phase-1 or Phase-2 permit is issued or denied, it undergoes a specific public notice and comment period pursuant to, but not limited to, NAC 445B.3683(5 & 7). Join the NMCP Public Notice E-mail List.
