Stephen Johnson on Homeland Security

Director of the E.P.A.


EPA focus: Drinking water must be protected

One of our most important homeland security responsibilities is to protect our drinking water supply. $44 million will launch pilot programs in cities of various sizes to explore technology and systems that detect contamination before it causes large scale harm. The program includes resources to create the Water Alliance for Threat Reduction to train and prepare the operators of our nation’s largest drinking water systems.

Lead federal efforts on security of drinking water supply

Steve will bring valuable experience that will help us improve our homeland security. As an expert on pesticides, he helped design new regulations to improve food safety. In his new role, Steve will lead federal efforts to ensure the security of our drinking water supply and to better monitor urban water systems. EPA personnel are playing an important role in the war on terror, so my budget increases support for EPA homeland security programs by more than 70 percent this year.
