Under Gov. Evers' Safer at Home emergency order, the DNR is committed to balancing its obligation to the law and to protect public health and the environment. We recognize that the outbreak may impact some regulated entities’ ability to comply with all statutes, rules, and permit or license conditions.
Where regulated entities will - due to direct impacts from COVID-19 - have an unavoidable noncompliance situation or are seeking advance approval for compliance assistance, they can use this form to contact the applicable regulatory program within the DNR.
If you have a spill or compliance problem that poses an imminent or actual threat to health or the environment report it immediately upon discovery by calling toll free 1-800-943-0003. This number is normally used for spill reporting, but during the COVID-19 emergency we are expanding its use to include other issues requiring immediate attention. The number is monitored 24 hours a day.
If there is no imminent or actual threat to health or the environment, regulated entities should still contact the DNR without delay.
- The preferred method is to contact your DNR compliance contact or project manager for your site or facility, and provide the DNR with the information listed online here. If this option is available to you, please do not use this form.
- If you do not have a specific contact to use to notify the DNR, or if you were unsuccessful in making contact using the preferred method, please complete and submit this online form.
Whichever method used, notification of a current or expected non-compliance is required to be able to evaluate requests for compliance assistance as a result of COVID-19. Requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
