I'm not sure, but it was definitely quite low. (Possibly as low as the concentration detectable with a mercury meter.) Here are a couple of li nks that you can use to read more about Clancy and his work: d=13786

The MN Pollution Control Agency and the MN Dept. of Health h ave done a lot of work in this area. In fact, they have a black Labrador Re triever named Clancy trained to sniff out mercury vapor that they take to s chools both for demonstration and testing purposes. (They also have mercury vapor meters - I figured I best include that note as well.)
