Environmental Impacts

Copper's use in almost every aspect of daily life necessitates a clear understanding of its effects on various environmental systems. CDA is currently involved in investigating various effects of copper on the environment from potable water systems, to roof run-off conditions. Upon completion of some of the studies, reports will be issued and posted as they become available.

The first summary report currently available is Copper Roofs and Water Runoff - An Overview. Additional updates to this report will be issued shortly.
