Regional Offices

There are three regional offices:
  • North - Oxford, Lafayette County
  • Central - Pearl, Rankin County
  • South - Biloxi, Harrison County
which provide investigative, logistical and limited analytical support for the major regulatory programs.
Closer contact with pollution sources and the affected population allows the staff of these offices to better respond to public needs such as:
  • inspections
  • routine air and water monitoring
  • investigation of fish kills
  • spills and accidents involving oil or hazardous materials
  • coordination with the state civil defense on national disasters
  • other emergency services during incidents involving substances dangerous to lives and property.
Regional Office technicians are trained in investigative techniques and evidence gathering. Staffed with technical and support personnel these offices annually conduct more than 1000 complaint investigations. A comparable number are handled without follow-up investigation.
