At the Michigan Department of Community Health website there is now information on the addresses of all meth labs found since July 7, 2006. Why only since July? Well, that is when the law that allows such a list was passed. The list became available on January 3. I was expecting a bit larger list, but the PDF is only about 2 1/2 pages long. The really dismal aspect of the list is the fact that the majority of these former meth lab properties are right here in southwest Michigan.
25 out of the 38 properties on the list are from Allegan, Kalamazoo, and St. Joseph counties combined.
The listing provides details such as the structure type (i.e. SFH - Single Family House) and the remediation status of each property.
It is great that the public can have access to this information as meth labs basically leave behind a toxic waste dump of chemicals that can seep into walls, ceilings, and carpet. Anyone looking to buy a home should double-check (even if the seller swears that the home was never a meth lab) the property against this list.
