“I am honored to be reappointed to the LGAC,” Burke said. “Collaborating with local leaders from across the nation has resulted in policies that safeguard public health, protect our environment, and ensure the vibrancy of our communitiesI look forward to continuing this important work.

Acknowledging Burke’s continued commitment to public service, EVMWD’s General Manager Greg Thomas stated, “Darcy Burke’s dedication and contributions to the LGAC highlights her steadfast commitment to providing a world of experience and expertise across multiple spectrums and prioritizing the needs of our local communities on this crucial advisory committee. She is a voice of reason to help the Committee make sound recommendations to the EPA and safeguarding public health.”

As one of the two LGAC members from California, Burke contributes to the committee’s female majority, marking the first time in its history that the LGAC group is predominantly composed of women.
