Assistant Administrator for Water to Step Down at EPA

WASHINGTON, D.C. — After serving three years at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, today Assistant Administrator for the Office of Water Radhika Fox announced that she will depart the agency at the end of February 2024.

Appointed by President Biden and confirmed with robust bipartisan support by the U.S. Senate, Assistant Administrator Fox spearheaded EPA's successful agenda to protect American communities from water pollution while embedding equity and environmental justice across its Office of Water programs. Fox has led EPA's effort to implement billions of dollars of funding secured by President Biden under his Investing in America agenda to tackle water pollution from lead and PFAS, while advancing regulations to ensure every American has access to clean and safe water and can enjoy America's natural resources.
