Progress Report 2011:
Regional Administrator's Letter


Dear Readers,

jared blumenfeld

Environmental progress has always depended on the efforts of citizens, government, businesses and other institutions to move us forward, whether through bold action or small steps.

As EPA begins our fifth decade of work to protect human health and the environment, we salute the many partners whose focus and determination have joined with ours to bring about real change, one step at a time.

We strive to use our oversight responsibilities to encourage innovation while steadfastly upholding environmental laws – from energy projects in sensitive desert ecosystems, to metal plating shops in residential neighborhoods, to military expansion on Pacific islands.

We invite your input on our work and your help in protecting the environment of this vast, magnificent region.
We have made great strides over the past four decades, and we must continue our collaborative efforts to protect human health and the environment.

Jared Blumenfeld
Regional Administrator
