What's in My Neighborhood

This online application offers you a way to access a wide variety of environmental information about your community. You can search for:

  • Potentially contaminated sites: Since the early 1980s when major federal and state cleanup programs were created, the MPCA has been aggressively searching for and helping to clean up contaminated properties, from very small to large. This website contains a searchable inventory of those properties, as well as sites that have already been cleaned up and those currently being investigated or cleaned up.
  • Environmental permits and registrations: This Web application also contains a searchable inventory of businesses that have applied for and received different types of environmental permits and registrations from the MPCA.

If a business or location is on this website, does that mean it is a threat to my family or the environment?

No. This information is made available so that you may understand your community and environment better. If a property or business is listed on this website, that does not imply a threat to you or the environment. Formerly contaminated sites are included, even if they have been cleaned up. Businesses listed as having environmental permits, such as air emission permits, are complying with the law and agreeing to operate within the limits established by the MPCA.
