It is important to let regulators know when pollution events like odors and large plumes of smoke occur so that they can be investigated. Creating a public record can help strengthen air pollution protections. Help us be an extra set of eyes and ears for state and local agencies by acting as a watchdog in your neighborhood.

To report a complaint, call 205.938.Gasp (4277) and leave a message with your name, phone number, additional contact information, and a description of your concern. Alternatively, use the form below to record your complaint. We’ll send complaints to the appropriate agency (either the Jefferson County Department of Health or the Alabama Department of Environmental Management.)
