ATSDR Division of Regional Operations

The Division of Regional Operations fulfills the Agency's directives at the regional level by staffing an ATSDR Regional Office within each of the 10 EPA Regional Offices.

The regional representatives are essential liaisons with all NCEH/ATSDR divisions and offices and facilitate the implementation of their specific programs in the regions. Through the working relationships they have established with EPA, other federal and state agencies, individual citizens, and community groups, regional representatives are able to maintain current and historic knowledge of the sites and issues in their regions. This information enables ATSDR to address regional issues with appropriate sensitivity and make informed decisions.
