DEA creates first-ever national meth site registry

DEA

D.C.- Today, the Drug Enforcement Administration announced that, as a free public service, DEA’s webpage (www.dea.gov) will post locations in each state where known methamphetamine clandestine labs or dumpsites were located so that individuals can be aware of possible meth contaminated sites within their communities. This is the first such national listing of seized former meth sites available to the public.

"In a cruel twist of fate, people who have never used or manufactured meth have become some of its hardest hit victims after unknowingly buying property contaminated by chemicals and waste generated from a meth lab," said DEA Administrator Karen P. Tandy. "This registry gives home owners a new tool to help them ensure that their dream house is not a hidden nightmare."

The website will contain addresses reported by a variety of law enforcement agencies where chemicals or other items related to meth production were found or dumped. Users of this posting should be aware of its limitations – data is reported voluntarily from a wide variety of sources, and may not be comprehensive.

Concerned parties should check any entry of interest, by contacting local law enforcement and local health departments. Further, these entries should not be used as a substitute for advice from a licensed professional familiar with the specific facts and circumstances.
