Report a Concern

One of South Nation Conservation’s (SNC) principal mandates it to protect people and property from natural hazards. SNC relies on members of the public to assist in identifying and reporting development activities that may be in contravention of the Conservation Authorities Act.

SNC also administers Part 8 of the Building Code for seventeen municipalities in Eastern Ontario and encourages public reporting of potentially failing private septic systems and the installation of septic systems without a permit.

Please describe your observation to the best of your ability and identify the location. SNC staff will assist filling out the form upon request.

Before submitting your concern, please read and acknowledge the following:
