Dear Chair Carper and Ranking Member Capito,

On behalf of Clean Water Action and our members across the country, I am writing to urge the Committee to confirm Radhika Fox for the position of Assistant Administrator for Water at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

Radhika has a track record of bringing stakeholders together to hear each other’s points of view and where possible to work for common goals. In her work at the US Water Alliance, she has helped foster innovative solutions to complex challenges in the water sector and mobilized diverse voices in support of those solutions. As the EPA Office of Water carries out programs around water pollution, drinking water, and wastewater, a nominee with a wide breadth of experience is essential and Radhika Fox has that experience.

Radhika has a track record of leadership as well as involvement and expertise in some of the most urgent issues facing the water sector and our precious water resources. In the next several years, we will mark the 50th anniversaries of both the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act. A proven leader with firm grounding in our water challenges is the right choice to ensure that we reinvigorate implementation of these landmark statutes. We strongly support Radhika Fox’s nomination as Assistant Administrator for Water and urge you to move forward with confirmation.

I am happy to answer any question that you and Committee members have about our support for this nomination.

Sincerely,

Lynn Thorp, National Campaigns Director
