You can now report waterway issues to the North East CMA via the Snap Send Solve app.
This app allows you to take a photo of the issue which is georeferenced and sent to the North East CMA as well as your description of the issue. This allows CMA staff to get an accurate location and understanding of your issue.
Upon receipt of the report, it is reviewed to see if the issue best fits with another agency or is a CMA issue.
Snap Send Solve is the free app that simplies the reporting of community issues.
When you download the Snap Send Solve app, reporting is quick and easy if you see an issue while you are out and about. You can let the responsible authority know with only a few taps.
