Frequent Questions

I reported a tip/violation and no one has contacted me. How can I get a status on the tip I submitted?

Due to the nature of the tips sent to U.S. EPA, we are unable to provide status reports on any tip or possible investigation. 

Unless there is a need for additional information, you probably will not be contacted by an inspector. 

If the tip concerned a matter that U.S. EPA normally handles, it would have been forwarded to the appropriate office for action. 

If the tip was determined to fall under other agencies' responsibility at the state or local level, it would have been forwarded to them.
