LITTLE ROCK — An application that allows iPhone and iPad users to report possible environmental hazards to the Arkansas Department of Environmental Quality from their mobile devices is now available, ADEQ said Wednesday.


A similar app was introduced in November 2014 but was available only to Android users.


The new app is available in the Apple App Store. To find it, search for "ADEQ" and select the app featuring the agency’s seal. Android users can find the app in the Google Play Store.


When using the app to submit a complaint to ADEQ, the user will be asked to provide a complaint type — such as air, hazardous waste, water or unknown — and a description of the possible violation.


The user also will be asked to provide the county and location, or driving directions, and will have the opportunity to add photos. If GPS services are enabled on the device, ADEQ will geotag the photos.


Contact information may be provided, but it is not required. Complaints can be submitted anonymously.


A user who sees a possible violation in an area without cell service can save a complaint and submit it after regaining cell service.


Complaints also can be submitted online at www.adeq.state.ar.us/home/complaints.htm, in person, or by calling ADEQ at (501) 682-0744.
