Learn how to find local environmental data on interactive map

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency (MPCA) has created an interactive map system where anyone can find out what type of environmental activities are happening in their community or anywhere else in the state. Called, “What’s in My Neighborhood,” the web map can display environmental permits, hazardous waste sites, watershed directs and other points deemed of interest by the MPCA or its partners. The map also includes historical listings, such as formerly contaminated sites.

Below is a short tutorial on how to use the web map and find out what’s in your neighborhood.
