Professor James Salzman of the Emmett Institute on Climate Change and the Environment has been appointed to the U.S. National Drinking Water Advisory Council, a federal advisory committee that supports the Environmental Protection Agency in its duties and responsibilities to the national drinking water program.
Professor Salzman is the author of “Drinking Water: A History” (Overlook Duckworth, 2012), which Nature called “[an] absorbing chronicle of our complex relationship with H20,” and which the
News & Observer recommended as “full of colorful characters and fascinating stories that bring complex policy questions and options to life.” Perfect fare for the Legal Planet reader. 🙂
He also serves on the Trade and Environment Policy Advisory Committee, reporting to the EPA Administrator and U.S. Trade Representative on issues involving the intersection of trade policy and environmental protection.
