Note also that while confidentiality is allowed, anonymous complaints are not accepted.

I am concerned about my life and/or safety if this complaint does not remain confidential in accordance with RCW 42.56.240(2): "Information revealing the identity of persons … who file complaints with investigative, law enforcement, or penology agencies … if disclosure would endanger any person's life, physical safety, or property. If at the time a complaint is filed the complainant … indicates a desire for disclosure or nondisclosure, such desire shall govern.”

I have placed my initials in the box above indicating that I understand that our limited staff resources mean we cannot pursue enforcement action on all complaint and violation cases. However, on each case, on a time-available basis, the Department will conduct a reconnaissance level investigation by visiting the site, taking photos and making observations to the extent possible from public access points, (or from private property if invited by the owner). Following this investigation, we will decide whether further enforcement actions will be taken. As a general rule, only the most serious health and safety issues and environmental infractions will be pursued. We regret any inconvenience this may cause.
