In response to clandestine drug labs and the growing concern over the nature of potential health effects associated with residual methamphetamine in the environment, the Utah State Legislature passed the Illegal Drug Operations Site Reporting and Decontamination Act during the 2004 General Session. The Act was subsequently amended during the 2008 General Session to change the definition of contamination to include use, production, or the presence of methamphetamine in excess of decontamination standards. In short, the law provides a mechanism for cleanup of contamination and certification by local health departments that a contaminated property has been cleaned up to established standards. These questions address the responsibilities delegated to the Utah Department of Environmental Quality. State and local health departments have additional responsibilities that should be contacted if additional information is required.
