TDEC Complaint Form

In accordance with Section 118(a) of the Tennessee Water Quality Control Act, citizens can file complaints with TDEC regarding alleged noncompliance with our water quality laws. The Act requires TDEC to respond to these complaints within 90 days.

 

TCWN regularly files 118(a) complaints to draw TDEC’s attention to a variety of permit violations and encourages private citizens to do so as well.

 

You may submit a 118(a) complaint to your local TDEC field office.
