Environmental Complaints Program

As one of DEQ's highest priorities, the Environmental Complaints Program is a customer oriented process designed to address citizens' environmental complaints. The program's two main goals are:

  • Provide rapid response to each environmental complaint
  • Bring about regulatory compliance through a consistent and structured process.

The Environmental Complaints Program is unlike any other state complaint program in the nation in that specific timelines for communication with the complainant have been established within DEQ's regulations. The program has a uniform investigation process, a central repository for all complaint records, and direct continuous involvement with each citizen who lodges a complaint.

A complaint is defined as information provided to DEQ alleging site-specific environmental pollution. If you would like to register an environmental complaint online, please use the form below.
