Radhika Fox Nominated to Lead EPA Office of Water – Member Engagement Encouraged!
One of President Biden’s earliest hires at U.S. EPA, Radhika Fox, has been officially nominated for the role of Assistant Administrator of the Office of Water. NACWA has submitted a letter to Congress in support of her nomination as we believe she will be a strong champion for the clean water sector.
Having previously served as CEO of the U.S. Water Alliance and worked for a municipal clean water utility, Fox is intimately familiar with the needs of the public clean water sector. She will be able to bring all of those skills and experiences, especially on issues of environmental justice, equity, and diversity, to bear at EPA and will be an important voice for water in the Biden-Harris Administration.
NACWA encourages all member agencies to support Fox’s nomination as well by writing to your Senators and encourage quick confirmation. For any questions, please contact NACWA’s Managing Director of Government Affairs, Kristina Surfus.
