Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management

Working to Protect Rhode Island’s Environment

Who We Are….

The Rhode Island Department of

Environmental Management (DEM) is the state

agency responsible for preserving the quality

of Rhode Island’s environment for you and

everyone who calls Rhode Island home. Our

main office is conveniently located in

Providence. We help protect the
AIR you

breathe, the LAND your homes, businessesand schools are built on, and the

WATER you

use for swimming and fishing.

What We Do….

DEM takes citizen complaints about pollution

seriously and is committed to responding to

complaints as quickly as possible. By

contacting us, your complaint can be

addressed and the investigation process can

begin. Or maybe you don’t have a complaint –

maybe you have a question or need

information about something happening in

your neighborhood. We can help.

DEM receives complaints and questions about

many subjects, including: illegal dumping, odor

complaints from industrial facilities, illegal

discharges into streams/rivers, dust problems,

and similar threats to public health and the

environment.

How We Can Help You….

DEM encourages your participation in helping

us protect the environment and health of your

community. We are here to answer your

questions and investigate your complaints. Are

you looking for information about a particular

pollutant such as mercury or exterior lead

paint?

Or maybe you are interested in learning more

about a piece of property under construction

near your home, or how to properly dispose of

used oil? Are you concerned about illegal

dumping or strange odors in your

neighborhood?

We are here to serve you – please do not

hesitate to contact us if you have questions,

need to file a complaint about something

happening in your community, or want more

information about the many programs DEM

runs that may directly impact you or your

neighborhood. You can raise an issue

anonymously or leave your name to get followup

information.
