The U.S. Senate today voted to confirm Radhika Fox as Assistant Administrator for Water at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Following the vote, the BlueGreen Alliance released a statement from Executive Director Jason Walsh:
“Radhika Fox has the experience to lead the Office of Water as it works to ensure that all Americans have access to clean, safe water. The Office of Water has a key role to play in advancing action to repair our nation’s failing water infrastructure and building back resilient, healthy water infrastructure and ecosystems. Repairing our failing water infrastructure will boost our economy, create and sustain thousands of good jobs, ensure communities have safe and affordable water, and reduce pollution while combating climate change.
“We look forward to working with her as she leads those efforts.”
