James Salzman of Emmett Institute Appointed to U.S. National Drinking Water Advisory Council
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.
