Reporting an Activity/Incident Involving Pollution

To report an activity/incident involving pollution (oil, wastewater, litter, sediment, or any unknown material) entering the gutter or storm drain inlet, please call the Fort Bragg Police Department at 707-964-0200 as soon as possible and be ready to provide your contact information, date of the incident / activity, address or location of the activity, and a description of the pollution activity you are reporting. You may also call Chantell O'Neal at 707-961-2823 ext. 133 for non-emergency reports and general inquiries.

Preventing Pollution

Timely reliable information is necessary to predict the timing and location where dumped materials will re-emerge which provides an opportunity to apprehend the materials (and/or suspects) and thereby minimize the extent to which pollution of the storm drain inlets affects aquatic ecosystems in Pudding Creek, Noyo River, coastal wetlands, and the Pacific Ocean.
