Environmental Concern Form
What is the difference between environmental concerns and environmental emergencies?
An environmental concern is a situation that you believe threatens the environment, such as a trash dump or discarded waste tires in a stream. An environmental emergency poses an immediate threat to the public health or the well-being of the environment. Examples of environmental emergencies include:
- Oil and chemical leaks or spills
- Radiological and biological discharges
- Accidents causing releases of pollutants
- Fish kills
- Hazardous material incidents
If you are involved in or witness an environmental emergency, please call the Missouri Department of Natural Resources at 573-634-2436. For more information see Environmental Emergency Response.
To report an environmental concern over the phone, please contact the regional office in your area. You may also call 800-361-4827 Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
