Hazardous Materials Spills and Accidents
The Clark County Health Department has an environmentalist on call 24
hours everyday of the year to assist companies or individuals with
emergency situations as it pertains to public health. The health
department works with restaurants wanting to reopen after a fire, boil
water emergencies, communicable disease reporting, and catastrophic
natural and manmade events.
Other responses include any type of chemical spill that
threatens to or has contaminated soils or waterways of the State of
Indiana. In conjunction with the Health Department, the Indiana
Department of Environmental Management should be notified if there is a
spill from any source. A representative of the Health Department
will be available initially, but IDEM may arrive at a later point to
assist in remediation efforts.
