Do you have an emergency (like 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.
