Report pollution into the creek or into storm drains anywhere in the watershed

1. Immediately send an email to [email protected] with a photo, description of the problem, the time, and location. It’s helpful if you also note any color, odor, bubbles, muddiness, and whether it’s floating, on the bottom, or throughout.

Your email will show up immediately on the smart phone of DEP pollution detective Steve Martin and his team. During the week, they will investigate. If they can find the cause, they may be able to stop it and issue a fine.

After hours/on weekends call the Park Police at 301-949-8010. They are the only respondents at those times. They will investigate.

2. Submit a Water WatchDog Report.

3. Post your report on the FOSC listserv if you are a member of the listserv.
