The Department investigates all written complaints (form SA-2) regarding public health nuisances on diverse items such as individual sewage discharges, decaying matter, garbage and refuse and will take appropriate enforcement action if violations are found. These complaints will be investigated in accordance with "Rules and Regulations Relating to Public Health Nuisances." Complaints can be written on a form, or by letter. Complaints should be mailed either to the Main Office or to the nearest District Office.

The Department investigates reports of solid waste dumping and, if confirmed, will forward the complaint to PA DEP Solid Waste Management Division for follow-up action in accordance with their Solid Waste Program.
