Submit a Photo Observation

Using this submission page, you can download photo-only observations. A photo of water pollution can be just as important as quantitative data. If you see something out of the ordinary, take a picture!

Publicizing the negative effects of poor coal mining practices is an important step in changing the laws that regulate those practices. Furthermore, data posted on the website alerts us to where problems may be occurring and gives valuable data to compare to company-supplied discharge monitoring reports.
