Water Alert Reporting Network

Water Alert Reporting Network (WARN)


The Water Alert Reporting Network (WARN) is designed to help Ohians record and report suspected incidents of pollution or misconduct that could potentially harm our natural environment. The goal of WARN is to ensure that state regulators are aware of incidents of concern and that they address these incidents in a timely and appropriate manner. This network is also designed to empower volunteers to communicate ways to protect our waterways and stand as watchdogs against environmental harm.

If you suspect a pollution incident has occurred on an Ohio waterway, please fill out this form and contact your local authorities.
