Regional Operation Centers

The Water Quality Assessment Program (WQAP) Regional Operation Centers (ROCs) primary responsibility is providing logistical support to fulfill the data collection requirements for the Status and Trend Monitoring Networks and the Strategic Monitoring Program. Additionally, ROCs may assist with the data collection needs of other groups, such as algal bloom response, TMDLs, BMAPs, and others as deemed appropriate by the division. The ROCs are located within the DEP District boundaries. 

The three offices in the north region of the state have one manager and the four offices in the south region have another manager. Each office also has a local team lead (see information below).
