Rules and regulations, effective April 1, 2005, established decontamination standards for property that has been used for the manufacture of methamphetamine. The rules require the responsible party to:
Perform a pre-decontamination assessment to determine the level of contamination and the scope of remediation
Decontaminate the property
Document the activities according to the procedure described in the rules
The Carteret County Health Department is required to inform the property owner that the property was used as a methamphetamine lab and must be vacated until the remediation actions are completed as outlined in the General Statutes.
