Special information for dentists
Amalgam materials used in the past for filling dental cavities often contained mercury. Although mercury is no longer used by dentists, dental offices are required to have special equipment including amalgam separators that trap mercury and allow it to be properly handled.
New dental offices are required to submit a report to City Utilities to let us know that you are meeting the requirements of the federal rules. Also, dental offices that are bought or sold must submit a report at the time of sale. In 2020, all dental offices will be required to submit a report.
