“Beginning this week, the EPA is going to start implementing its plans to reorganize the 10 regional offices to more closely resemble the organizational structure at the headquarters in Washington, D.C. Plans for this move were announced back in September 2018 via a memo to EPA staff. According to a letter sent by Administrator Andrew Wheeler, this standard structure will be implemented this week at regions 3, 6, and 10. The remaining regions will change their structure the week of April 28th. According to Administrator Wheeler, the realignment will lead to improved coordination between the national programs and regional counterparts; more consistent implementation of regulations and policies; better resource sharing; and enhanced operational excellence and transparency.” Original blog.
