Become a Sligo Creek Water WatchDogThe Water WatchDog program is a simple system for reporting water pollution to County investigators as part of your daily routine — whether you are taking a walk, hiking, walking your dog, cycling or going to work.
If you spot pollution in the Sligo watershed, just send a quick email to ReportSligoPollution at fosc.org. Sending a picture helps. If the pollution occurs in some other watershed, use the email address ReportPollution at fosc.org.
Your email will show up immediately on the smart phone of DEP pollution detective Steve Martin and his team. If they can find what is causing the pollution, they may be able to stop it and issue a fine. If you have time, add one photo (less than 1 megabyte in size) and blog your report and DEP follow up on our Action Log. Having a record is important.
After hours (evenings and weekends), call the Montgomery County Park Police: 301-949-3010
