Ex-Del. Environment Secretary To Head Bay Program

BALTIMORE (AP) — A former Delaware environmental secretary has been named the new director of the Chesapeake Bay Program, the joint-federal state effort that leads bay restoration.

Nicholas DiPasquale was Delaware’s environmental secretary from 1999 to 2002 and most recently worked as a private environmental consultant.

EPA Regional Administrator Shawn M. Garvin announced the appointment Friday, saying DiPasquale’s expertise will serve the EPA and its partners as the program accelerates efforts to safeguard the bay.

The program coordinates restoration in the six-state watershed covering Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Delaware, New York and the District of Columbia.

DiPasquale takes over from Acting Director James Edward, who will resume his previous role as deputy director. Edward took over in May 2010 when Jeff Lape moved to the Office of Water at EPA headquarters.
