Ohio EPA SPILL Hotline 1-800-282-9378

“Report emergencies involving the release of any material that impacts public health or the environment, including chemicals, petroleum, manure, fires/explosions, or to make an emergency notification to Ohio EPA as required by law or by permit.”

What happens when you call?

“Ohio EPA emergency response (ER) staff responds to reported spills either in person or by phone with local responders (fire departments, emergency management agencies, etc.) and responsible parties. The primary purpose of a spill response is to identify and contain the material released, stop the release, and ensure the emergency is mitigated through cleanup efforts. If responding by phone, Ohio EPA relies upon response partner documentation and photos to show the emergency has been mitigated and ER staff will follow up to verify.

The emergency response program does not have statutory authority to “fine” anyone for environmental releases. The program can invoice responsible parties to recover costs incurred during an incident response. ER staff may refer incidents to other Ohio EPA divisions for additional follow-up when the emergency portion of an incident is complete.”
