The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) invites nominations of qualified candidates to be considered for a three-year appointment to the National Drinking Water Advisory Council, a federal advisory committee. There are six new vacancies. Nominees will represent:
· State and local agencies (one vacancy)
· Private organizations or groups with an active interest in water hygiene and public water supply (two vacancies)
· General public (three vacancies)
The 15-member Council was established by the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) to provide practical and independent advice, consultation, and recommendations to the EPA Administrator on the activities, functions, policies and regulations required by the SDWA. Any interested person and/or organization may nominate qualified individuals for membership.
The EPA values and welcomes diversity. In an effort to obtain nominations of diverse candidates, the agency encourages nominations of women and men of all racial and ethnic groups.
Submit nominations on or before October 6, 2014, to Simon.Roy@epa.gov. More information on what needs to be submitted is available at: http://water.epa.gov/drink/ndwac/index.cfm
