Report a Concern

This Report A Concern feature allows you send a question, concern, or comment you’d like addressed directly to you. However, please note that this feature should not be used for an emergency request – those are better directed to 911 for immediate assistance. Also, while requests submitted are regularly monitored, a response may not be available outside of regular County business hours (8 AM – 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday, except on posted holidays). We will be adding more categories to this feature soon, so check back often!

  • Report a general concern.
  • Report a traffic sign/signal problem.
  • Report a pothole, road-kill, damaged mailbox.
  • For concerns related to sewage, illegal dumping, hazardous waste, or illegal burning, please contact the Environmental Services Department
  • For concerns about noxious weeds or pests, please contact the Minnesota Department of Agriculture’s Arrest the Pest program
  • For erosion concerns, please contact Troy Kuphal with Scott Soil and Water Conservation District.
  • To report illicit discharges, please contact Jason Swenson with the Scott County Highway Department.  
    • An illicit discharge is any discharge to the municipal storm sewer system that is not composed entirely of storm water.  Waters used for firefighting operations are allowed.  In addition, any discharges approved under a National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit are allowed. 
    • Please note that MS4 permits also dictate who is responsible for investigating illicit discharge claims.  The county is not always the authority.  We may direct you to the appropriate authority in other local governments.
  • For grading concerns, please contact Jason Swenson with the Scott County Highway Department.  Please note that the county may direct you to the appropriate authority in other local governments if the area in question is not within the county’s jurisdiction. 
  • For concerns related to drainage, please contact Jason Swenson with Scott County Highway Department.  Please note that there are multiple local government authorities that can be involved in resolving drainage alterations.  The county may direct you to the appropriate authority in other local governments.  Please also note that drainage alterations may be below the county’s permitting thresholds, which means resolution may require cooperation between all impacted parties or civil court involvement.
