Lynn Buhl to Serve as EPA Regional Administrator for the Great Lakes
(Chicago, Ill. - July 21, 2008) EPA Administrator Stephen L.
Johnson today announced the appointment of Lynn Buhl to serve as Regional
Administrator for EPA Region 5, which encompasses Illinois, Indiana,
Michigan, Minnesota, Ohio and Wisconsin. Bharat Mathur, EPA's Acting
Regional Administrator since May of 2008, will resume his position as
Deputy Regional Administrator.
"As an attorney and public servant for over 20 years, Lynn brings
both leadership and experience in environmental regulation and
enforcement to this position," said Johnson. "EPA is lucky to
have Lynn, and I would like to thank Bharat for his continued service to
the agency and the nation."
Since September 2006, Buhl has served as Deputy Assistant Administrator
in the Office of Enforcement and Compliance Assurance at EPA
Headquarters, where she advised the Administrator on a wide range of
environmental enforcement issues.
Previously, Buhl served as Acting Secretary of Maryland's Department of
the Environment and Deputy Secretary of Maryland's Department of Natural
Resources. During her years of service in Maryland, she provided policy
advice to Gov. Robert Ehrlich Jr. and was instrumental in reforming
Maryland's contaminated site cleanup program.
Prior to her service in Maryland, Buhl worked at Michigan's Department of
Environmental Quality, Daimler Chrysler Corporation and in EPA's Region 5
office as an assistant regional counsel.
Buhl, a native of Missouri, holds a bachelor's degree from the University
of Virginia, and a J.D. from Wake Forest University School of Law.
