EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson has appointed Jeff Corbin as her senior adviser on Chesapeake Bay restoration.
In his new position, Corbin will help coordinate all aspects of the EPA’s strategic Chesapeake Bay initiatives. He will also serve as the lead liaison among the EPA, other federal and state government agencies, and various stakeholders throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed.
Corbin is currently a senior adviser to EPA Region 3 Administrator Shawn Garvin, with whom he works closely on Chesapeake Bay issues.
Prior to joining the EPA in 2010, Corbin served as assistant secretary of natural resources in Virginia. During that time he worked closely with the Chesapeake Bay Program when then-Gov. Tim Kaine was chair of the Chesapeake Executive Council.
Corbin also spent nearly 10 years with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation, ultimately serving as its Virginia deputy director and senior scientist.
Administrator Jackson’s former senior adviser on the Chesapeake Bay, Chuck Fox, left the position at the end of last year.
