      Hi All,

      This appears to be the DCR Division that manages the Flood Control
      Program. Can anyone confirm this and does anyone know the Acting
      Director Joe McQuinn?

      The Department of Conservation and Recreation Division of Water
      Supply Protection manages and protects the drinking water supply
      watersheds for nearly 2.2 million residents of Massachusetts,
      primarily in Greater Boston. The Quabbin Reservoir, Ware River, and
      Wachusett Reservoir watersheds are the sources of drinking water for
      distribution by the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA).

      The Division provides technical staff support to the Water Resources
      Commission, which includes coordinating the interagency review of
      proposed interbasin transfers, administering cooperative programs
      with the US Geological Survey, maintaining and repairing small
      watershed flood protection projects, and developing water resources
      policy and watershed planning efforts. The Division of Water Supply
      Protection manages the DCR Lakes & Ponds Programs, and is responsible
      for Dam Safety regulatory oversight, Dam Maintenance and Flood
      Control for 185 recreational impoundments in the state forests and
      parks system. The Division also administers the registration program
      for all well drillers operating in the state and enforces well
      driller regulations. The Division's Rainfall Program maintains a
      network of approximately 150 precipitation observation stations,
      operated by volunteers throughout Massachusetts, and a precipitation
      data base for research and analysis.
