What I want to do
Link a clip from LEAN's recent guide to environmental action.
LEAN and Tulane Environmental Law Clinic have both recently published Citizen's Guides to Environmental Protection that are worth elevating.
This portion of this Guide can be distributed alongside the OTK to communities concerned about reporting oil pollution in Louisiana.
I have added the National Response Center's number as a contact, so that Citizens and Environmental Organizations can monitor reports with Skytruth Alerts.
The Louisiana Bucket Brigade also has a iWitness reporting map.
Just posting this, as complaints are more vital than ever:

Since this is late, file a complaint:
if an ongoing emergency, call LSP, not LDEQ.
Louisiana State Police (LSP) Hazardous Material Hotline at (225) 925-6595
LDEQ 1 888 763 5424
If they would like our national partners to be informed, it's good to file an NRC report, I can help with that.
US Coast Guard 1 800 424 8802
To report video files, after you have called,
1) with an incident or complaint number,
2) date, your name, and suspected responsible party
Requirements for Emergency Notification: (LAC 33:I.3915)
For Emergency incidents, as defined in (LAC 33:I.3915), call the Louisiana State Police (LSP) Hazardous Material Hotline at (225) 925-6595 as soon as possible within the first hour of the emergency. A call to the LDEQ does not qualify as Emergency incident notification. However, a written notification report by the facility to the LDEQ is still required within seven calendar days after the initial reporting to the Louisiana State Police.
