DEA Creates First-Ever National Meth Site Registry 

DEC 5 -- (Washington, D.C.)-Today, the Drug Enforcement Administration
announced that, as a free public service, DEA's webpage (
 ) 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.
