What happens when an investigation is completed?
When an investigation is finished, MDH issues a report on the site. The report describes the site's hazards and recommends actions designed to protect the health of the public.
Our reports on hazardous sites are distributed to government agencies involved in the investigation as well as citizens who request them. MDH mails letters or information sheets summarizing the site report to everyone who has expressed interest in the site. We also use a variety of other media-including community meetings-to explain our findings.
MDH works closely with all parties involved to see that our recommendations are carried out.
