Do you know about Meth Properties? WUTK News investigates!

TENNESSEE’S METICULOUSLY CATALOGED LIST OF QUARANTINED PROPERTIES IS STEADILY GROWING DUE TO THE PRESENCE OF METHAMPHETAMINE.

WITH OVER TWELVE-HUNDRED PROPERTIES ON THE LIST, AND FOURTEEN OF THEM DATING AS FAR BACK AS TWO-THOUSAND-FIVE WHEN THIS POLICY BEGAN, THE TENNESSEE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENT AND CONSERVATION HAS A BIG TASK ON THEIR HANDS.

“What I would be concerned about would be – from an acute exposure type situation –would be like a child or a kid busting into the house.”
