This property assessment, courtesy of the MT DPHHS, will ask you to provide some basic property location information. Experts will look into the property location and check for any previous, adjacent or current hazardous environmental exposures that could be through air, water or soil. They will use DEQ GIS data to look for hazardous waste sites that could be close to the location. They can also look for areas known to have groundwater issues with uranium, manganese, PFAS, etc. for any potential hazards, make recommendations, and provide education where needed.
