Meth Labs

Meth labs in Oregon are moving out of urban areas and in to out-of-the-way places like forests where the huge quantities of contaminants that are generated now threaten the environment. Criminals also threaten natural resources by stealing old-growth trees, and public property like bridge rails. Follow a group of specialists as they clean up a creek in the foothills of Elk Horn range, where toxic chemicals used to manufacture meth were dumped.
