Inquiry/Question/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:

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.

You may choose not to provide your name if you prefer to remain anonymous, but we won't be able to provide feedback or we may not be able to proceed with a full investigation if we do not have enough information. However, according to the Missouri Sunshine Law, any information gathered or maintained by the Department is open record and may be distributed if asked for.

The Missouri Department of Natural Resources provides a way for you to report suspected environmental concerns through this online reporting form. If you would rather contact a regional office near you feel free to use the "map for office locations" for more information.
