Report a Neglected Swimming Pool

Neglected pools produce mosquitoes putting you and your family at high risk for West Nile virus.

Report a neglected pool by submitting a service request. A technician will treat the pool and add mosquitofish which feed on mosquito larvae and stop mosquitoes from developing.

Report a Dead Bird

Dead Crow

Over 160 species of birds have been found infected with West Nile virus (WNV). The mortality rate of crows infected with WNV is very high. Because of this, we use crows as an indicator for WNV presence. Crows that are in good condition will be tested by the New Jersey Department of Health for WNV. NJDOH will only test birds that have not been dead for more than 48 hours.

If you have a freshly deceased crow, please call the Sussex County Department of Environmental and Public Health Services at 973-579-0370.
