Hazardous Material Spills and AccidentsThe 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.
