County Department: DEP
Discolored or Odorous Creek or Stream
Pollution from a variety of sources can discolor creeks and streams, or cause odors that are unnatural. The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) investigates these problems to determine if they pose a hazard to human health or the environment. Please refer to the link below for information about water pollution and pollution prevention.

Online customers wishing to have DEP investigate a potential water pollution issue may click on the "Create Service Request" button below. Please complete all required fields, and provide any information that will help DEP address the issue in the "Additional Information" box.

An investigator from DEP will typically contact the requestor within 3 business days, although resolution of the issue may take longer depending on the circumstances of the case.
