Clandestine Laboratory Cleanup [Meth Lab]
Arkansas Act 864 of 2007 addresses the cleanup of properties contaminated by the illegal manufacture of controlled substances, or clandestine laboratories, more commonly known as meth labs. The act created a certification program for individuals who inspect, sample, remediate, and remove contaminated materials from such properties. It also requires that DEQ be notified after a clandestine laboratory has been discovered and that DEQ maintain a listing of these properties.
