Report a Violation

Reporting Alleged Violations
of Section 404 of the Clean Water Act or
Section 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act

Please report violations of these laws to us. We probably will not learn of violations unless you tell us. Please be aware, however, that due to our workload and other constraints we can not always follow up every reported violation.

To successfully pursue a violation the Corps must establish regulatory jurisdiction over the site. The penalties for violating the laws can include administrative, civil, and criminal proceedings. Resolution of violations can range from after-the-fact permitting to mitigation/restoration, penalties and/or and incarceration. Normally we seek restoration of site.

A copy of our violation reporting form is available in pdf format.

You may report a violation by mail (snail mail), email, telephone, or fax. If you choose to report a violation via telephone, please call our Contact Representative at (415) 503-6795 so that she may direct your call to the appropriate person.
