Report A Pollution Violation

All pollution violation reports are confidential. While we prefer that you supply contact information, anonymous tips are accepted as well. You can report anonymously by creating a free temporary email address through yahoo or gmail using an alias such as “concerned_citizen.” This will allow us to contact you if we have further questions or need clarification about your report.

Please review “Signs of Normal Activity” below before reporting a suspected violation.

If you are reporting an active petroleum or chemical spill or other emergency situation please contact the DEC Spills Hotline at 1-800-457-7362 and/or your local police and emergency responders.

To report a violation to Riverkeeper, submit a report online or call 1-800-21-RIVER ext 231
