Report a Problem

Thank you for being a solution to water pollution! Streams and rivers need everyone's help to stay healthy for wildlife and for our drinking water sources. We need engaged communities and citizens to help keep our water sources clean.

If you notice an abnormal change in stream conditions, such as an unusual odor, color, cloudiness or other circumstance---litter, algae growth or a fish kill---please contact the Stormwater or Engineering or Public Utilities contact in your area, or your local watershed group.

Also, you can contact the TDEC Field Office for your area at 1-888-891-TDEC (8332).

If you cannot find a local contact to help solve the problem immediately, contact us and we will try and refer you.
