Emergency Spill Response: Selecting a Spill Contractor and Spill Contractor Map
When spills occur, it is imperative that prompt actions are taken to protect human health, the environment, and property. These actions often require the expertise of specialized professionals who are trained and equipped to respond to environmental emergencies. To help expedite the containment and cleanup of spills, IDEM has developed two new webpages: Selecting a Spill Contractor and the Spill Contractor Map.
The spill contractor map is specific to spill response contractors servicing Indiana and is not intended to include other services such as environmental consulting, permitting, or industrial hygiene. If your company specializes in emergency spill response, you may complete the Spill Response Contractor Form to be added to the map.
