Picture showing the falls on the Big Sioux River.The protection of South Dakota's natural resources is important to the citizens of this state. One of the responsibilities of this department is to respond to citizens' environmental concerns and complaints. Citizen involvement is critical to the effective implementation of our environmental programs, and we welcome your input.

Pursuant to SDCL 34A-2-111, the department is required to receive a signed complaint form before responding to water quality complaints. To make this process simpler, the complaint form is available online.  You may either print the form to complete it by hand or fill in the form online and then print it. 

Please remember to sign the form and return it to:
