To report an oil spill or other environmental emergency that poses a sudden threat to public health, call the National Response Center at 1-800-424-8802.

For anything related to water, report an environmental violation via EPA’s website: http://www.epa.gov/tips/  and you may also call OEPA at: 1-800-282-9378.

ODNR suggests… “At the well storage tanks there is an identification sign providing company contact as well as emergency contact information. The company contact as well as the emergency response number should be used depending on the nature of the issue. The emergency responders can address emergency issues (and notify ODNR) and can contact ODNR for non-emergency issues.”

Please note, NEOGAP suggests that if an emergency situation exists, you should NOT get near the storage tanks for your own safety and call 911.
