Spills: Reporting and Data Access
Industry, waste transporters and others are required by Federal and/or State law to report spills and other environmental incidents immediately to within 24 hours, depending on the incident.
In the case of emergencies, call 911 (or other local emergency response number), especially if the incident threatening public health or the environment requires immediate action by local authorities.
This table summarizes types of incidents and which Division should be contacted. More information on specific reporting requirements is available here. The submission of a written report summarizing the incident and remedial actions taken is often required. The appropriate Division can provide you with more information.
