River/Environmental Violations

Citizens can help by reporting any suspicious behavior, odors, off-color water, dumping of garbage, chemicals or other items into streams, ponds or wetlands, and illegal digging or dredging. 

Other types of violtations can include illegal discharges to the river or tributaries, illegal dumping, unpermitted diversions (withdrawals of water), threats to groundwater resources, non-point sources pollution (unregulated discharges which run into sewers, drainpipes, etc.)  and problems with erosion control from ongoing development. 

Appropriate steps will be taken to report these situations to local,  state or federal agencies as well as municipal wetlands, environmental enforcement and planning officials. To report suspected environmental violations you may contact the QRWA via an email at qrwainfo@att.net or by calling the office at 203-237-2237.
