I wish to bring forward a problem the Expedition will be facing in the case that you may not be aware already.
The Maiden of the Spring, a Fey the Expedition first encountered in Abhien Harbor, is suffering from quicksilver that is contaminating the waters in the area. Due to the efforts of the Expedition, she was cleansed of the madness the quicksilver causes about a year ago, but it is slowly becoming not enough. Time is running short, and she will lose control again soon if something is not done about the contamination in the water. The Maiden will seriously impede further exploration of Abhien, and pose a serious threat to the lives of Expeditioners, if she returns to her prior state corrupted by the quicksilver.
We ask that moves be made to treat the water in these areas. Vrraj has suggested a lime-softening treatment can be used to pull the contamination from the water. Perhaps there is a better method we are unaware of, but I think this is a necessary, and time sensitive, need of the Expedition.

After speaking with several of the Expedition's Thaumaturges, I would like to offer our services to help resolve this problem. I strongly believe there is a Thaumaturgical resolution to this problem, and with support and assistance from the Thaumaturgical Tower, I expect we can come up with an effective solution. Of course, if other non-Thaumaturgical approaches to solving the problem are more cost-effective, I implore the Council to pursue such means.
Greetings! At this time I am pleased to announce that the expedition's forays into Adermire have been successful in preventing any further contamination of the groundwater of the Blighted zone by quicksilver. You are right to state that something has to be done to cleanse the waterways of the expedition sites, and we are working out possible solutions to this problem. Since time is of the essence, any work or investigation that can be done by expeditionary forces will surely help us figure out the best course of action to be performed. Anyone willing to work with our alchemists, runesmiths and artisans on this problem as we move towards the next expedition will be most welcomed by me and mine.
Thanks you for voicing your concerns, Wrench of the Eastwick Trading Coalition

I believe that allocating funds for the lime-softening procedure should be perfectly possible, though if anyone would be willing to influence politics to secure more funding for the process, that would certainly make my task both quicker and more certain. As the process has been explained to me, however, it would be key to establish some sort of "collection zone", effectively a place where the body of water can dump the bunched and solidified quicksilver. I'm not yet certain where and how we'll be able to establish such a thing in the Blighted Zone, so I will be consulting experts and scouts, and I encourage anyone interested in this to also pursue this line of inquiry. Under normal conditions, this sort of thing would be relatively straightforward, but establishing any sort of machinery or even collection netting can be quite difficult in the Sixth Kingdom, for obvious reasons. As always, I seek your insights and thoughts, but I will certainly set my own resources to this task, and see what I can come up with so we might all collaborate towards success. Though I cannot speak for all of them, I believe the Council in general recognizes this as a pressing matter.

The Expeditionary Council has seen to it that scouts found an appropriate location from which to perform the lime-softening procedure in order to cleanse the waters. The scouting was performed during the most recent Expedition, and the most effective location lays near Abhein Harbor. While preliminary efforts are undertaken and final supplies are garnered, any additional effort the Expedition might offer to assist in scouting, engineering, construction, facilitation of supply runs, alchemy, or anything else is welcome. Expect that next Expedition, if all goes well, we will have the opportunity to perform the procedure.
