If you own a property, vehicle, watercraft, RV, or travel trailer where a clandestine meth lab has been located, you may be required to have some testing completed to determine the contamination levels.
The initial notification of the meth lab is provided to the county health department by law enforcement in the county where the lab was located. You can find the contact information for the county health department at the following link: http://www.in.gov/isdh/24822.htm
Title 318 of the Indiana Administrative Code governs the required clean-up of these properties, vehicles, watercraft, RVs, and travel trailers. You can also get information from the Indiana Department of Environmental Management (IDEM) by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or at the following link: http://www.in.gov/idem/4178.htm. IDEM will have a list of certified contractors on their website for you to choose from that will provide testing and/or clean-up services for your property. For a document of frequently asked questions regarding cleanup requirements go to the following link: http://www.in.gov/idem/files/druglab_cleanup_property_owner_faqs.doc.
