The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency’s (MPCA’s) “What’s in My Neighborhood” online application offers users a way to access a wide variety of environmental information about their communities. The application uses a geographical interface which lets them search for potentially contaminated sites and environmental permits and registrations nearby.
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. The 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. This application also contains a searchable inventory of businesses that have applied for and received different types of environmental permits and registrations from the MPCA.
