Do you have an emergency, such as an environmental law violation or a hazardous spill? Call the DNR Violation Hotline or Emergency Spill Hotline:

               Violation hotline - 1-800-847-9367

               Emergency spill hotline - 1-800-943-0003

The DNR's violation and emergency spill hotlines provide Wisconsin citizens with the opportunity to confidentially report suspected environmental violations using a toll-free number. The hotline numbers are in operation 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Trained staff relay reported information to DNR conservation wardens. Anyone who calls the hotline or provides information can remain anonymous.

If you need immediate legal advice or representation you may want to contact a private attorney. The State Bar of Wisconsin Lawyer Referral and Information Service can help you determine if you need a lawyer, and how to proceed if you do. 

In the meantime, make sure to check our resources for information and guides that may give you an idea on first steps to pursue.
