Report an Environmental Emergency

An environmental emergency is a sudden threat to the 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.  Report environmental emergencies to the:

Pollution Emergency Alerting System (PEAS) Hotline at 800-292-4706

This hotline is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.  During daytime hours, you may also contact the appropriate district office directly.

NOTE:  Many incidents that are reportable to EGLE also warrant reporting to the federal National Response Center which serves the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Coast Guard: Federal NRC hotline:  800-424-8802

If your matter is not an emergency but you have a question or are seeking information about EGLE programs, regulations, reporting requirements, reportable quantities, etc. please call our EGLE Environmental Assistance Center:  800-662-9278.
