Environmental Complaints

Complaints are an effective way for the public to advise us of potential noncompliance occurring at a site or facility. Information we receive from Jefferson County citizens is vital to our efforts to protect our environment. If you observe or have knowledge of any activity that may be in violation, we urge you to contact us. The sooner a violation is reported, the greater our chances of limiting the threat to human health and the environment.

Please keep in mind that each violation report we receive is taken very seriously. Staff time and resources are required in the investigation of each reported incident. The more information you provide the more effective and efficient the investigation becomes. You may submit a complaint to us by calling us at 409-719-5910.
