Do you have an environmental complaint?
A complaint is defined as information provided to DEQ alleging site-specific environmental pollution. To file a complaint, you can call the DEQ Environmental Complaints Hotline, at (800)522-0206. Or, if you would like to file an environmental complaint electronically, you can use the online form to e-mail a complaint to DEQ.
For DEQ to adequately address your complaint, we need for you to provide us with certain specific information. Please describe your complaint in as much detail as possible, including information about when you first noticed the problem, how often it occurs, who is responsible, and specifically where the problem is located. Please provide an address for the complaint site. If you do not have an address, provide detailed finding directions to the complaint site beginning at a nearby major intersection. Be sure the finding directions are complete.
If you want to receive updates concerning your complaint, you can leave us your name, mailing address and phone number on the online form, which will enable our investigators to contact you for additional facts and provide you feedback on the investigation. Upon request, we will keep this information confidential, which will protect your identity and contact information from release on public records, unless ordered released by a District Court. If this is your preference, check the box to the left of "Confidential". Of course, please feel free to remain anonymous.
Regardless of the nature of the situation, or whether or not you choose to leave contact information, please rest assured that DEQ will seriously consider the information and that we appreciate that you took the time to inform us of your concerns.
Department of Environmental Quality
When we receive your complaint, it will be entered into our system and, if you left your name and phone number, the investigator will be contacting you soon. We appreciate this opportunity to be of service to you.
