File a complaint against ADEQ
You can file a complaint against ADEQ or an ADEQ employee by contacting the ADEQ Ombudsman. The mission of the Ombudsman is to improve the effectiveness, efficiency, and responsiveness of the department by responding to citizen complaints or requests for information about the department or its services. The Ombudsman accepts complaints submitted via phone, email, fax, mail or in person.

File a complaint with the Ombudsman-Citizens Aide
The Ombudsman-Citizens Aide serves as an independent agency to resolve citizen problems with state agencies in an independent, non-adversarial way. When a resident thinks they have been treated unfairly by a state agency, department, board or commission, and the person exhausts all administrative remedies, the person may seek the help of the Ombudsman, whose services are free and confidential.
