In 1856, Atlantic States Cast Iron Pipe, then known as the Warren Foundry & Machine Co., became a part of history when the company supplied pipes to bring drinking water to New York City. Today, the company is making a little history of their own with a new mercury emissions reduction program that will raise the bar for iron foundries across North America. The foundry will be the first in North America to apply control technology to substantially limit mercury emissions, even though its current system meets its permitted limits.
