Report an environmental emergency

Call our Pollution Emergency Alerting System (PEAS) hotline at 800-292-4706

An environmental emergency is a sudden threat to public health or the well-being of the environment from the release or potential release of oil, radioactive materials, or hazardous chemicals into the air, land, or water.


This hotline is staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Note: many incidents reportable to EGLE also warrant reporting to the federal National Response Center

The federal National Response Center (NRC) serves the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Coast Guard.

Federal NRC hotline:  800-424-8802
