Water Contacts

The "on-call" system. If you have a question relating to permitting or licensing, enforcement, or general questions related to water quality, please call your nearest regional DEP office, describe your question to the receptionist, and ask to speak to the "on-call" person.

Most questions can be answered by the person on-call. If the on-call person needs assistance, he or she may speak to another staff person and get back to you, or refer you directly to another staff person. Sometimes the "on-call" person may already be helping someone else when you call. If so, he or she will call you back.
