    agencies are obligated to prosecute environmental violations even if no one complains.

    But if a complaining citrizen settles with a polluter and stops complaining, some agencies will let their investigation die on the vine.

    But again, in theory, there would still be a case file and the initial documentation in the agency's possession for nosy people like me to find.
