The Office of the Attorney General's Environmental Crimes Unit works with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Washington Department of Ecology, and other agencies to prosecute criminal violations of state environmental law. If you have knowledge of suspected environmental crimes in Washington State, please fill out the form below.

To report an emergency, please dial 911 immediately. To report a spill, leak, or discharge, call Washington's Emergency Management Division at 1-800-258-5990. This form is intended to inform the Attorney General's Office about potential environmental crimes but is not intended to be a substitute for reporting spills, leaks or other potentially illegal activity to the Washington Emergency Management Division, the National Response Center, or local emergency responders.

Please be advised that under Washington law, the Attorney General cannot act as your private attorney or give you legal advice. Deadlines may prevent you from starting a lawsuit if you wait too long. Filing this complaint does not change those deadlines or guarantee the results you want. You may wish to contact a private attorney.

This complaint will become part of our permanent records. Complaints may be released to the business or person about whom you are complaining, members of the public, or other agencies attempting to establish ongoing conduct that may violate Washington's environmental laws. This form is also subject to the Public Records Act and may be disclosed to persons who request to review its contents.
